Second walk using this app. This is THE BEST walking app I’ve found. So easy to use and I’ve found walks I love on my doorstep!

Can’t wait for next weekend to find more… Also it’s great in advance as we are planning walks whilst we are on holiday in the cotswolds and Scotland this year - really enjoying it so far!

Stage 3 takes us right into the Dartmoor National Park and is where the original Two Moors Way starts. Once out of Ivybridge, past the old Stowford Paper Mill and out onto the moors, you really feel that you're on a long-distance trail. Look out for the MW signs as you work your way across the tops, through Scorriton to reach Holne.

From the edge of the moors into the AONB. A lovely wander following the valley of the River Erme, in an area where the wild beauty of the moor and the mellow delights of rolling South Devon meet and merge.
