Map E4: Fernworthy Forest Printable Version
Wonderful riding avoid to west
Lots of interest, some not obvious inaccessible & areas, Forest, River Dart, Postbridge Village
Going west into blanket bog,
Lots of small bogs
Trying to get through wall close to south of forest as gate is locked
River crossing at Hartyland 643 796 can be difficult
Don’t use route H –Hangingstone Hill except in clear and good weather
Bridle path 643 797west of Hartyland is awkward through boulders
C- Circular Route is mostly easy to follow and is most interesting ride.
H– Via Hangingstone Hill goes deep into the moor and is mostly on a visible green track
Points of Interest:
Postbridge with East dart Inn and paddock & good shop which does take away pasties and tea.
Dramatic River Dart valley
Interesting old sheepfold, recently restored (can temporarily put horses in) 645 809
Grey Wethers stone circles
Ruin of Teignhead Farm
Good lunch stop just inside bridle path into Forest643 843
Views from Sittaford and other Tors
by Road on main B3212 where there is parking
(Busy in summer) or by Bridle path through forest.
Generally go EAST
