A circular trail from Bovey Tracey on the edge of Dartmoor, passing through the Parke Estate. The outward leg runs through a beautiful section of wild woodland alongside a picturesque section of the River Bovey and then climbs to return through fields and wild meadows and a short section of the disused railway. The area is very popular with dog walkers and there are plenty of opportunities for a paddle on a hot day. The walk follows woodland, riverside and meadow paths all of which can be quite muddy after periods of wet weather. The walk is relatively flat but has one steady long climb half way through. There are several kissing gates and two stiles, both of which have adjacent dog gates. There are public toilets both in the car park at the start and also within the Parke Estate, on the return leg. Approximate time 2 hours.

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