The Dartmoor Way is a new 108-mile walking route which will give hikers the opportunity to walk around the entirety of Dartmoor National Park in Devon.
Experience quiet footpaths, bridleways and little-used byways passing through many of the attractive towns and villages the nestle on the edge of Dartmoor.
The route has been waymarked from scratch as part of a project led by the park’s authority and local rambling groups.
The route was first thought up in 1999 by members of the Dartmoor National Park Authority.
However a lack of funding meant the walking route remained “map and description only” since its initial unveiling in 2002.
In 2013 Sustrans, a local cycling charity. relaunched the way-marked cycle track with some improvements.
A further 26 mile-long High Moorland link has been introduced this year to create a figure of eight route.
The route is split into 12 sections which start and finish in the towns and villages located around the route, such as Okehampton, Chagford, Moretonhampstead, Buckfastleigh, Princetown and Tavistock.
The Dartmoor Way links with the Tarka Trail, West Devon Way and Two Castles Trail.
