2018 Walk list (Easy)

07/08/2021 | STEPPING STONES WALK Easy walk

Walk overview

From the CP we will drop down over the bridge and past Dunnabridge Pounds towards Laughter Hole Farm.  Our first set of stepping stones are across the East Dart River. A pleasant stroll will take us through a farm and we will follow the river to Badger’s Holt.  Then through Huccaby and over Hexworthy Bridge to Hexworthy.  A road towards Sherberton will take us to the next set of stepping stones before our last grand arc of stones take us across the West Dart River (see photo). 

Dogs – This may be a difficult walk for dogs, due to the stepping stones.  But all dogs MUST be on a short lead which must be attached to its owner.

IMPORTANT – PLEASE NOTE – If there has been a lot of rain in the lead up to this walk it will be rerouted – a walk over Bellever Tor and Bronze Age remains.
