Dartmoor is a beautiful place, but the North Moor in particular is a wilderness. The weather can change from fine to horrible within minutes, and walking conditions can be difficult. The area we will be walking is used by the Army for training purposes so there are some good tracks. Nevertheless we need to go equipped for any eventuality.

Accommodation

There is a 126 bed Youth Hostel in Okehampton with varying size rooms. From a social point of view as well as a logistical standpoint it would be a good idea if everyone stayed there. However if youth hostelling is not your thing, there are a number of B&Bs and hotels in Okehampton and a selection of campsites in the nearby area.

Oke Tor

Oke Tor

The day trek will consist of a circular route of about eleven miles in the northern part of Dartmoor near the town of Okehampton. The walk will take in a number of tors in the area, including High Willhays which is the highest point on Dartmoor. The tors will involve some hill walking with varying heights and gradients and the sections between the tors are a mixture of tracks and moorland heath.
