Overview

Walking through the Arboretum from the CP, climbing up to Sheepstor via the easiest ascent for stunning views from the top. Descending via Piskies House to meet the road and follow round to Sheepstor Church for lunch. Across the Dam and following the waterside path back to the CP for a longer explore of the paths around the Arboretum if weather's good. Plenty of scrambling and adventure along the way. Optional stop for drinks and cake on way home at Yelverton.
