Very picturesque walk with plenty of opportunities for good food and treats. Small climbs and if you stayed on the old railway bank ideal for wheelchairs as well

A very nice hike easily accessible in the middle of the forest and Bruyères, accompanied by Dartmoor tires. A river at the bottom of the valley allows you to cool off. Walk about 3.5 hours (taking pictures) very nice.

Really enjoyed the 1st half of this loop but then I got a little lost with no clear path. Perhaps this comes with my inexperience. Hit a patch of boggy marsh but not for too long. I would do this walk again but perhaps edit the loop on the last mile or 2.

Excellent views!

Super easy walk around the lake but very busy area. Definitely not as adventurous as my normal walks. I much prefer getting off the beaten track. Facilities: - Pay for parking - Toilets currently closed

This route is perfect for walkers and runners. Lush scenery with trees and ponds everywhere. The little bridges make it feel all the more adventurous and there are plenty of benches for you to sit back and admire the view.

This route is perfect for dog owners during the hot weather. The walk to the quarry is not challenging and provides lovely views. At the quarry there is shade and water for dogs to cool down in (it also makes for a fun, enclosed area to play hide and seek with liitle kids). An additional benefit to this route is how easy it is to add on to other routes that are in the haytor vicinity.

Moderate is a good assessment, mostly easy walking but with some uneven ground and steep stairs on the way (if you go from Chagford to Fingle Bridge), the way back is easier. Bring your swimming clothes and a towel as there are a few spots for a dip and a splash.

Lovely walk especially as it was very windy in the moors. And a lovely cafe - Home Farm Cafe for scones and tea �.

Very nice walk. Not too strenuous and quite relaxing. Nice views and lovely scenery all the way around. Car park is £1.40 for 1-3 hours which is plenty of time for this walk.

Great easy trail we went off course to explore and it was great through the woods was got abit more public than expected around the lake but still very enjoyable walk
