2 miles (3 km)

This walk visits the popular tourist spot of Dartmeet in the Dartmoor National Park. It's a lovely scenic area where thetributaries oftheEast DartandWest Dart meet. Highlights include a set of stepping stones and a picturesque clapper bridge which dates from the medieval period. There's also nice easy riverside paths along the river and a more challenging climb to the nearby Yar Tor to try from here.
Start the walk from the Badger's Holt car park, next to the Dartmeet Bridge. From here you can follow footpaths north along the river before turning north east. The route then climbs to Yar Tor which stands at a height of 416 metres (1364 feet), providing fabulous views over the surrounding area.
After taking in the views the route descends to a country lane where you pick up the Dartmoor Way long distance trail which runs through the area. Follow the trail west and it leads across Yar Tor Down to the car park.
To continue your walking in the area head west along the Dartmoor Way to visit the pretty village of Princetown. Here you can visit Two Bridges, another popular beauty spot on Dartmoor. The atmospheric Wistman's Wood Nature Reserve is easily reachable from here.
