A Return Trip On The Haytor Hoppa
My return trip on the Haytor Hoppa
One walking highlight of last year was a blissful day spent among the bluebells and tors of Dartmoor's eastern flanks.With the Haytor Hoppa service running again this summer, I was looking forward to returning to my stomping grounds of old.
The Haytor Hoppa web page suggests a number of walks, both circular and linear, that start and finish on the bus route. This time I set my mind on one of the longer routes, a 7.5 mile circular starting at Manaton and heading over to the village of Lustleigh and back via the beautiful wooded Cleave.
