Overview

We take the Two Moors Way south towards Birch Tor before leaving it to head to Hookney Tor, Grimspound and Natsworthy. Then we’ll follow the Mariners’ Way to Heathercombe. Extensive views as we climb back to Hookney Tor, descend to Challacombe, on to mining country and further evidence of the area’s rich and varied past ahead of completing our figure of eight.
