Near Princeton. Limited parking st the start of this particular walk. But a lovely walk once you get going. It is difficult to walk though the woods themselves as the granite boulders are all at different heights but can walk around. There’s also a ridge...More

Walked to the Tors from the small car park opposite Two Bridges Hotel. A steady incline and the ground is uneven in places after you pass the farm. The views are spectacular in all directions. We then went down towards the woods, fascinating gnarled and...More

We drove to the Two Bridges Restaurant where you can use the large parking lot for a small fee. This is important because the small parking at the beginning of the path fills up quickly. The walk to the wood is enjoyable, although not spectacular....More

The area is very interesting, the walk pleasant but short. The main feature is the remaining ancient wood- this is what Dartmoor was covered with. Short skinny trees, more like large bushes. The walk probably carries on though. Fairly easy.

This is not a walk for anyone who is a little unsteady on their feet. The terrain is very uneven with lots of loose stones. However the path is well worn with lots of people on it so you will not get lost. One review...More

Reached after a 30/45 minute walk over rough ground from the small car park at Two Bridges, this small and stunted woodland of 500 year old oak trees is quite something. The trees, mostly stunted by the exposure to Dartmoor weather, are set on the...More

Walks on Dartmoor come in all shapes and sizes, a walk to Wistman's Wood is quite straightforward, approximately 45 minutes from Two Bridges ending at this mystical place with trees covered in moss and all very close together. We've walked there a few times over...More

The wood in early April was without leaves, the trees and rocks about their base were covered with delicate lichens and moss. A really beautiful walk and place to visit

You might have to ask the local Mayor but I would just get on with it. Nobody's going to mind, especially if it's not at the weekend. Have a nice time. I might recommend the top of the moors instead- nice views although... More
