found an article about this wood in early this year, and then I was lucky to have my holiday in the area at the end of May. So I didn't want to miss the chance to walk by and have a look. At first, it...More

You start walking from the car park opposite the Two Bridges hotel. The first part of the route is on a well maintained farm track to a farmhouse. You can make a choice here to either go on a lower track or go to the...More

Visiting Wistman's Wood was the highlight of our time on Dartmoor. Magical mysterious woodland with an eerie feel - We expected Fangorn the Ent to come walking out at any time! Small free car park (which was fell so we parked in a nearby layby),...More

Parking is limited, but plenty of room opposite at the Two Bridges Hotel who only charge £3 for parking (looks to be an honesty policy). The walk is over half a mile, but absolutely worth it. The wood has a mystical feel and is absolutely...More

The walk is just over a mile along a gentle climb with a few wet gullies. It is NOT a quarter of a mile as outlined by the Countryfile walk, a fact that needs correcting. Parking is limited so an early start is recommended. I...More

After lunch at The Two Bridges (where you can get a leaflet on the woods), we set out in the rain for Wistman’s Wood. From the car park the sign to the woods was not obvious. The walk there was easy, but take care in...More

Near Princeton. Limited parking st the start of this particular walk. But a lovely walk once you get going. It is difficult to walk though the woods themselves as the granite boulders are all at different heights but can walk around. There’s also a ridge...More

Walked to the Tors from the small car park opposite Two Bridges Hotel. A steady incline and the ground is uneven in places after you pass the farm. The views are spectacular in all directions. We then went down towards the woods, fascinating gnarled and...More

We drove to the Two Bridges Restaurant where you can use the large parking lot for a small fee. This is important because the small parking at the beginning of the path fills up quickly. The walk to the wood is enjoyable, although not spectacular....More

Hi, the only walking path I know is from the Two bridges hotel in the National Park. Around 3 - 3,5 miles there and back. But better to check the reviews, maybe you can find others hiking another path.

You might have to ask the local Mayor but I would just get on with it. Nobody's going to mind, especially if it's not at the weekend. Have a nice time. I might recommend the top of the moors instead- nice views although... More
