Starting point Starting point in Chagford - Devon

A circular walk in the east of Dartmoor following roads and paths, including sections of the Two Moors Way. The walk includes a mix of open moorland, footpaths and quiet roads where the farming hinterlands meet the moor. Except for the section north of the road near the Warren House Inn, all the paths are well-trodden and waymarked. There are some steep sections. Apart from the high moors, this walk is fairly sheltered from the prevailing SW winds.

Starting point Starting point in Throwleigh - Devon

A beautiful walk past granite Devon longhouses and open moorland on the edge of Dartmoor. It's recommended to do this walk clockwise as the last footpath is difficult to find going in the other direction.

Stage 6 is a tricky navigational test as we leave the Dartmoor National Park and head into Mid Devon. The route crosses the A 30, the main Exeter to Barnstaple rail line and the busy A 377. There's plenty to keep you occupied and some pretty hamlets to go through (avoiding some interesting villages, so you might be tempted to go off-route at some point).

distance 19.74km Vertical gain +605m Vertical drop -606m Durée 7h20 Average Average
Starting point Starting point in Manaton - Devon

This is a circular walk that combines moorland, streams and woodland on Dartmoor, passing the dramatic Hound Tor and iconic Bowerman's Nose and including opportunities for refreshments at the half waypoint. It is a good length with some steep hills for some hearty exercise and is mainly off-road, taking advantage of well-marked footpaths and tracks. You could start the walk at Lustleigh or Manaton if you prefer, and there are various short-cuts available if you wish to shorten the walk.

Starting point Starting point in South Tawton - Devon

A Dartmoor walk that includes the most north-easterly summit in the National Park which offers some fine views especially to the north. The route needs careful navigation at the start and in poor weather you need a good sense of direction and compass skills.

distance 23.63km Vertical gain +380m Vertical drop -490m Durée 7h50 Average Average
Starting point Starting point in Dartmoor Forest - Devon

This stage is the last part of the Two Moors Way in Dartmoor National Park. First, it retraces steps back to Bennet's Cross to join the trail and then avoids the high ground to the west by heading for the Teign Valley. There are a mix of landscapes and a real high point at Hunter's Tor near Castle Drogo.

Starting point Starting point in Holne - Devon

This stage has a sting in the tail as an option for all those YHA lovers. The Two Moors Way goes about 5 miles east of YHA Dartmoor at Bellever but that shouldn't stop you from staying there. The extra few miles at the end of this stage and the journey back to the Two Moors Way at the beginning of the next stage are in no way laborious, rather a bonus.

distance 11.59km Vertical gain +267m Vertical drop -269m Durée 4h05 Average Average
Starting point Starting point in Lydford - Devon

The wild open speces of Dartmoor can be appreciated on this walk. The route takes you past a number of rocky tors, visits an area used for peat cutting and follows a section of the Rattlestone Peat Railway. All in all a walk full of interest.

distance 11.45km Vertical gain +422m Vertical drop -420m Durée 4h30 Average Average
Starting point Starting point in West Buckfastleigh - Devon

This Dartmoor route uses a section of the Two Moors Way. The route follows paths and tracks although a good sense of direction is needed in what can be an unforgiving landscape. After wet weather, streams may be in spate so care is needed crossing them.

Starting point Starting point in Ivybridge - Devon

Stage 3 takes us right into the Dartmoor National Park and is where the original Two Moors Way starts. Once out of Ivybridge, past the old Stowford Paper Mill and out onto the moors, you really feel that you're on a long-distance trail. Look out for the MW signs as you work your way across the tops, through Scorriton to reach Holne.

Starting point Starting point in Plymouth - Devon

The Two Moors Way was officially opened on 29 May 1976. In 2005 the Two Moors Way was linked with the Erme–Plym Trail from Ivybridge to Wembury on the south Devon coast to create a cross-county coast-to-coast route of over 115 miles.

distance 17.9km Vertical gain +216m Vertical drop -237m Durée 5h45 Easy Easy
Starting point Starting point in Plymouth - Devon

This stage is really an add-on to the official route. There is an option to use the Erme-Plym Trail that is, in itself, an add-on to the original Two Moors Way. This will take you straight to Ivybridge through Brixton and Yealmpton. However, this route takes you along the coast to Wembury. The ferry option reduces the road walking considerably.
