Guide to the Dartmoor Way, a waymarked 175km (109 mile) circular walking route around the edge of Devon's beautiful Dartmoor. Presented in 10 stages (plus the High Moor Link which can be used to create two shorter loops), the route takes in wooded valleys, sparkling streams, moorland, farmland and attractive towns and villages.

Ideal in the 'shoulder' months: wild flowers, lambs and foals in spring; rusty bracken moorland, colourful oak woods and diverse fungi in autumn. Expect cooler and wetter weather in autumn and winter.

Includes short but steep ascents and descents, but the route is well signed and split into easily manageable day walks. Alternative low-level routes listed for days when visibility is poor, and navigation may be a challenge.
