The Dartmoor Walking Festival

Walking Festivals are great and the Dartmoor Walking Festival (now in its 3rd year) is no exception. Run entirely by enthusiastic Dartmoor walkers, the Dartmoor Walking Festival offers everything anyone who enjoys walking on Dartmoor could be interested in. From night time Dartmoor legends to detailed explorations of the famous Dartmoor bogs, this walking festival really does have something at every level for any walker, hiker, bimbler or even plodder. This year all of the Dartmoor Walking Festival walks are linked to one or more of the collectable squares in the Dartmoor 365 book. If you aren’t already hiking Dartmoor collecting squares, ancient crosses, letterboxes or even lesser known caterpillars then you really should take a look at Dartmoor 365. We Blondes are on our way to completing it and walking in all 365 square miles of Dartmoor but we still have a lot of Dartmoor walking to do yet! Below are just a few examples of what the Dartmoor Walking Festival 2018 has to offer.

We Blondes also have navigation training days that fall outside of the Dartmoor Walking Festival dates.
