Dartmoor Walking

Walking: the most ancient exercise and still the best modern exercise.

  ~ Carrie Latet

Whether you're looking for a challenging trek across windswept moors, or just a relaxing stroll through secluded woods, you've come to the right place.

Dartmoor has it all. Blaze your own trail, be a pioneer, explore and take the less trodden route. If you know your way around an OS map, download one of the many map routes below, gather your kit and head out the door.

If perhaps you are a little less confident of your surroundings, why not try a guided walk with our very own Dartmoor National Park Guides, download an audio walk to your mp3 player, or sample some of the easy circular routes. There are some excellent planned routes for families - including ones designed to put the children in charge - lasting from an hour to a full day.

For a wide choice of walking routes, please see below. Most of the suggested walking routes include 'route guides' - just click on the wayfinder tabs and download your preferred walk.

Alternatively, walking maps can be purchased at Tourist Information Offices, click here.

Note that all maps on this site are only indicative. You should never set out on a Dartmoor Walk without the correct OS map.
