14 km / 9 miles
A low-level alternative to the crossing of Hamel Down. The path makes a short crossing of Dunstone Down and takes in the pretty village of Widecombe-in-the-Moor, famous for its annual fair. Minor roads and field paths lead along the Natsworthy valley until the main route is rejoined close to Chagford Common.
