Description EN

The North Dartmoor GeoPath incorporates 5 existing opencaches which are still part of the Dartmoor Challenge. This is the second of those caches and takes you to one of my favourite and most recognisable tors on Dartmoor and the 5th of 14 tors you will visit on this geopath.

It is best NOT to head directly to this tor from Fordsland Ledge but to follow the contours around to the left heading for Waypoint 1. Once at the waypoint there is a very clear track heading towards Lints Tor. Follow this to Waypoint 2 and then head towards the Stream Crossing waypoint, keeping to the higher ground on your left to avoid any boggy bits. The Stream Crossing waypoint provides an easy crossing and then just follow the arrow to the cache.

 

The Dartmoor Challenge is a series of 42 caches which have been placed in some of the most remote places on either Dartmoor's North Moor or South Moor. Each cache has been placed to bring you to a special place on Dartmoor, often a beautiful stream, a striking tor or another of Dartmoor's endearing features.

21 of the caches are listed on opencaching.org.uk and 21 on geocaching.com.  None of the caches are cross-listed and the series could be considered to be 2 separate series.

35 of the caches are traditional caches, 3 are puzzle caches, 2 are moving caches and 2 are 5/5 bonus caches. In order to locate both bonus caches you will need to collect coordinate information which is available in ALL of the 38 feeder caches. Please DO NOT share this bonus information with anybody.

IMPORTANT NOTE: All of the caches on the North Moor are located in or near to one of the Military Ranges where live firing occurs. You must check out the Firing Notices before entering any of the ranges. DO NOT ENTER THE RANGE WHEN THE RED FLAGS ARE FLYING. Never pick up any objects, they may be unexploded devices.

The weather on Dartmoor can change suddenly and unexpectedly and ALL types of weather conditions can be experienced. Please ensure that you have the correct clothing and map & compass (and know how to use them). Please do NOT rely solely on your GPS.

I would like to thank the Dartmoor National Park Authority for their kind permission to place this cache, which has been placed according to the geocaching guidelines.
