Rising above the Dart Valley, Mel Tor sits at 1,135 feet (346 m) and offers fantastic views west, to Venford Reservoir and beyond. To the west, the wilds of Dartmoor unroll whilst the thick woodland around the River Dart whispers of all sorts of secrets in the valley.
You can scramble up Mel Tor's granite jumble with relative ease if you’re comfortable doing so and it’s not too windy. Like all of Dartmoor’s tors, the weather up here can be changeable and you might enjoy far-reaching views or, alternatively, not be able to see your hand in front of your face thanks to mist.
