Description EN

High Willhays is the fourth of 14 tors that you will visit to complete this GeoPath and it is the highest tor on Dartmoor and in fact the highest point in England south of Kinder Scout in the Peak District. Unfortunately it is a far from impressive tor unlike Yes Tor which you have just visited. The route from Yes Tor to High Willhays is very simple and is plainly visible at all points along the route.

 

IMPORTANT NOTE: All of the caches in this Geopath are located in or near the Okehampton Military Range 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.
