Walk Introduction - (sketch map)
This walk involves visiting only a few features but with a continuously changing scenery it is pleasant and challenging. Sticking to the public footpaths at the Two bridges you can create one circular route out of two. By walking the length of either the Beardown Tor walk or the Higher White Tor/Crocken Tor walk you can simply cross the West Dart and West Dart Leat to complete the circuit back.To cross the West Dart I recommend that you traverse toward the weir at the higher ground past the Tors. Using boulders to step-stone across the river is quite fun but potentially dangerous, be careful.
A virtually windless bright start to the February was inspiring and stayed most of the day. Route: Beardown Tor via Beardown Farm & West Dart Leat; and Higher White Tor to Crocken Tor via West Dart crossing (near weir); return to Two Bridges. Noticable event: one of the last legal hunts on Dartmoor (16-02-05). Group: 4 adults and 4 children. Distance: 10km.
