30/08/2022 | Stepping Stones Walk Moderate walk

Walk overview

Starting from the Dunnabridge Pound large car park (SX642747) we will walk across the bridge to Dunnabridge Pound and take the track to Laughter Hole Farm. Shortly after this we will cross the Easy Dart River on our first of three sets of stepping stones. From here a track and the riverside path will take us to Badgers Holt. Tracks and roads will then take us past Huccaby Church to the village of Hexworthy. A short walk will then take us to our second set of stepping stones before we arrive at the large sweep of stepping stones over the West Dart Riven. A pleasant stroll will take us back to the road and the car park. Please note that if we have had heavy rain I will change the route as the striping stones may be submerged! I have put this as a non-dog friendly walk due to the stepping stones.
