This walk takes you from Shipley Bridge to the Avon Dam reservoir along the River Avon. The walk begins at the car park at Shipley Bridge about 2 miles south of the reservoir. You then pick up a well surfaced trail along the river to the Dam before continuing around the northern side of the reservoir. The walk passes Brent Moor, Dockwell Ridge, Gripper's Hill and Dean Moor. It's a lovely riverside walk with weirs, brooks and great views of the surrounding Dartmoor countryside.
The Two Moors Way runs past the northern end of the reservoir so you could pick this up to continue your walk.
