The vast expanse of Dartmoor is a wonderful place to explore at any time of the year and as its southern edge is just thirty minutes or so from Muntham it makes an ideal day trip with a canine pal. One of the great features of the moors are the Tors or hills with rocky outcrops of varying size.
Each May youngsters from the South West take part in the Ten Tours Challenge in which as the name suggests they have a limited time to visit ten designated Tors.
Leisure visitors are perhaps best advised to to visit just one or two on a visit. Some like Hay Tor are well known and attract many visitors others are less well known and make an ideal choice for anyone wanting to really appreciate the wilderness even at the height of summer.
Visit Dartmoor has excellent information about the Tors. Click here for more information. Please remember that much of Dartmoor has free romaming livestock and it is essential that you keep your dog under control at all times.
