Trail Running NT special – a Dartmoor addendum

The latest issue of Trail Running magazine has 31 National Trust trail running routes highlighting the brilliant nature of the Trust’s special places for running. Well done to @NTSport (Rob Joules) for sorting with the magazine.


There were several Devon routes in the magazine but none from Dartmoor so I thought I would add a few here for you which you can check out.

Parke – near Bovey Tracey – parkland, woodland, riverside and disused railway trails

Teign Valley – near Castle Drogo – run up and down the Gorge and along the river

Shaugh Prior – Dewerstone Woods – run up the Plym on the footpath to Cadover Bridge and back – spectacular

The Upper plym around Trowlesworthy – moorland running up to Hen Tor and then down to Shavercombe Valley and back along the Plym

Hembury Wood near Ashburton on the Dart. Plenty of footpaths throughout the wood – very up and down

Holne Wood, New Bridge on the Dart – great track up the Dart

Explore and enjoy!
