    Saddle Tor Walk

    The Saddle Tor Walk is a great adventure in Dartmoor National Park that offers beautiful views across the moor and is suitable for walkers of nearly every skill level. While out on the trail, you will work your way up the hillside to a prominent rock formation with a commanding sightline of the surrounding area. There is a short amount of uphill walking to reach the viewpoint at the summit, so be sure to wear comfortable walking shoes.
