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. There is one ford to cross so scooters need to be capable of driving through water. The road is part tarmac, part gravel some of it rocky and bumpy. 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.

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.

31/08/2022 | Exploring habitats: brilliant bog Moderate walk

Walk overview

Did you know the Earth’s bogs store more carbon than its rainforests? Bog mosses are hero plants, building the brilliant bog that blankets Dartmoor’s upland plateaux and is home to some rare and extraordinary plants and animals. Plants here have to live off just rainwater and sunshine; all that is except those which have taken to eating insects, as seen on The Green Planet! Join Geri Skeens as you go in search of these sticky little plants and others that flower in high summer such as colourful bog asphodel and the waving heads of bog cotton. We’ll learn about life on the bog and enjoy the wild, remote beauty of Dartmoor’s peaty heart.
Some of the terrain is rough, wet and slightly boggy. Walking boots will do fine; no need for wellies.
