Positive Princetown Pootle

Starting and ending in the historic village of Princetown this circular walk is no more than 10 miles and encompasses areas such as North Hessary Tor, Foggin Tor Quarry, Crazy well pool and South Hessary Tor. During the walk we can discuss the history and mythology of these amazing locations as well as look at some of the flora and fauna we encounter on our route. 

The walk ends at a classic Dartmoor Pub so you may want to enjoy a refreshing drink or brilliant pub meal.
