Dartmoor - Walks for Motorists

Dartmoor - Walks for Motorists

by: Brian Le Messurier
With far-reaching views across apparently endless rolling moorland and hills, punctuated by rocks and tors, Dartmoor offers exhilarating walking country. Standing stones and hut circles, evidence of ancient activity, can be discovered set against this rugged and powerful landscape. The area is a haven for wildlife and has a gentle side as well, with secluded mountain streams and valley woodland, tree fringed reservoirs and delightful towns to be explored.

The 30 circular walks in this book are all chosen with the motorist in mind. They cater for all ages and degrees of walking experience. The routes have clear directions to the starting point and parking place. Each one is accompanied by a detailed sketch map and description of the route, and notes on points of interest along the way.
