Name: Roos Tor Ramble
No. of Caches: 17 (includes 2 caches on route by same CO)
Length: 4.5 miles to be completed clockwise
Owner: Dartmoor Dave
Cache Types: Most of the caches are large enough to hold swag and trackables and are reasonably easy to find.  There are a couple of novelty type caches.
Bonus Caches: 1 bonus cache NOT at the end of the series.  Only 6 bonus  numbers need to be collected, all of which are repeated in a second cache.  Calculate the bonus coordinates as soon as you have sufficient numbers.
Terrain: There are reasonable paths on much of the route, but not between RTR06 and RTR08 which is typical moorland grass, although fairly dry, even in winter.  The 2 climbs are relatively easy.  However, this is a fairly remote walk and adequate clothing is essential.  Do NOT rely solely on your GPS.
Parking: Parking for about 6 cars on the grass at the start point.
Description:  A circular walk which is not too strenuous and would be ideal for a youngish family, but is not pushchair friendly.  Good quality caches throughout with some excellent views.  Allow at least 4 to 5 hours.

FPW - I’ve used the Wilson Score Interval method to rate caches by favourite points. This is far better than a simple count or average as it takes into account the total number of finds. It does not include logs from basic members.
