Geocache Description:

Higher White Tor (527m) is situated in the middle of Dartmoor at the highest end of a ridge that includes Crockern Tor (419m), Littaford Tors, (466m) and Longaford Tor (507m).
From the parking area at Two Bridges the rise in altitude to the cache is approx. 180 metres (590ft).

This Tor is one of my favourites because of the panoramic views. On a clear day more than 85 other tors, hills, ridges etc. are visible.
Fairly easy walking, by Dartmoor standards, but can be muddy in places, strong waterproof footwear is a good idea.
Routes (round trip): Powdermills 3 miles, Cherrybrook Hotel 3.9 miles, Lych Way 4.2 miles and Two Bridges 4.8 miles.

The container is a clear plastic 1.1L, 4-clasps "Lock 'n' Lock" (20 x 14 x 5 cm).
Contents: Log Book, pen, pencil, laminated map of surrounding tors, and a few swappables.

Please upload photos from your walk/adventure - "A picture is worth a thousand words".
