This is something to try with friends, family and kids. The high winds of a few weeks ago made this treacherous, but a sunny day in late winter was perfect. I stayed at the bottom (as official photographer - nothing to do with my fear of climbing or heights!)
This is the most popular part of Dartmoor. Easy parking, nearby toilets and an ice cream van in the car park. It is also doable with children and dogs. Head to Haytor!
