Dartmoor Way

Home   Our Funders

The Dartmoor Way Project has created two parallel routes around the perimeter of Dartmoor.  Both routes are Way Marked.  The cycling route was opened in 2013.  The Walking Route was launched in September 2020.

Our Official Launch will be at Ivybridge on 29/04/22 followed by a three day Walking Festival

The Dartmoor Way Walking Route is a 108 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, easy to follow, Dartmoor Way Walking Route uses quiet Devon footpaths and lanes.

In addition to the main circular route, there is a 27 mile-long High Moorland link or cross moor route.  This is an introduction to remoter parts of ther moor.  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 tracks 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.  We plan to introdue completion stamps along the route for walkers to collect as they complete each section.

This is a Ramblers/Dartmoor National Park Project.
