Explore Dartmoor - Walk the Dartmoor Way


As there are certain features on the website that are still to be completed, owing to the Coronavirus restrictions preventing us from getting out on the route, we have unfortunately been unable to finish off these features.

In view of this, we are having to put back our website launch date. We plan to get out to complete our work as soon as commitments allow and hope the delay will not be too long.

We apologise for this, but are sure you will understand the reasons why we have had to do this.

Please visit the Dartmoor Way's Facebook & Instagram pages for further information & updates.

The Dartmoor Way Walking Route is a 100 mile-long circular route which winds its way around the natural beauty of Dartmoor National Park, linking hamlets, villages and towns along its length. Most of the route is on a separate alignment (footpaths) to that of the cycling route (minor roads).

This recreational route takes walkers through the varying landscape surrounding the High Moor, visiting attractive and interesting locations which offer a wide choice of places to eat, drink and stay for the night. The well-signed Dartmoor Way Walking Route will follow quiet Devon footpaths and lanes, we plan to complete the signing by the end of 2019.

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 footpaths, to airy moorland paths with panoramic views, this route has interest packed into every mile.

Walkers will discover full days of beautiful scenery, wonderful places to stay a while, and great places to explore.

This is a Ramblers/Dartmoor National Park Project.

We will acknowledge the great contribution of our funders when this site is amended to launch the completed route.
