Standing on the western edge of Dartmoor, Cox Tor offers fantastic views all around but notably to the west where the moor drops away and fields roll into the distance. To the east and north, some of Dartmoor’s wildest sections are visible and it can be very atmospheric. At 1,450 feet (442 m) high, it’s the perfect vantage point from which to see White Tor, Great Staple Tor and Great Mis Tor. Its bulk is home to numerous ancient hut circles so to hike up here is to hike in the footsteps of Bronze Age peoples. On the summit, you’ll find a trig point and possibly some blustery wind.
