Walk overview

A circular ramble following the ‘Okehampton Military Ring Road’ into the heart of Dartmoor. It is a category 3 walk for people using mobility scooters but other walkers also welcome.

This is an area used extensively by the military for training and there are several visual examples of this to be discovered. Some superb views across Dartmoor, from the highest part of the Moor.
