Reply To: Why so few dartmoor trails?

Hi Matt, Congratulations on your achievement. Most of the route (and I walked much of it in completing the caches) is far from easy and for much of the route there are no trails but just the odd boundary marker and tor top. Without wishing to detract in any way from your achievement, it makes you appreciate just how tough the 10 Tors is. They walk 55 miles (88km) over much the same sort of terrain but have less than 2 days to complete it. In fact many complete it in about a day and a half! Did you use your gps or just walk map & compass?
