This location is very desolate and is quite some distance from a safe parking area. Please ensure you are properly perpared for a long hike on the moor.

The Dartmoor 1:25000 OS map shows this to be an Artillery range so vigilance is required but it is possible to get to the cache on old tracks of varying quality.

There is NO mobile signal in parts of Dartmoor, you need to bear this in mind in case of emergencies.
The GPS signal at the cache site should not present a problem.
You will need to take a pencil/pen for the log.
