The Dartmoor Way Cycle Route is a 95 mile-long circular route which winds its way around the natural beauty of Dartmoor National Park, linking
hamlets, villages and towns along its length.
This recreational route takes cyclists through the varying landscape surrounding the High
Moor, visitingattractive and interesting locations which offer a wide choice of places to eat,
drink and stay for the night. The well-signed Dartmoor Way Cycle Route follows quiet
Devon lanes and minor roads,and uses traffic-free cycle tracks wherever possible.
In addition to the main circular route, there is a 27 mile-long High Moorland link.
This allows you to follow a 'figure of eight' route, or alternatively enjoy either of the shorter
north or south circular routes.
The Dartmoor Way offers many possibilities for a break away - from a day trip or weekend,
to a full 5 - 7 day holiday. From winding, secret, Devon lanes, to airy moorland roads with
panoramic views, this route has interest packed into every mile.
Cyclists will discover full
days of pedalling, and wonderful places to stay a while, and explore.
