The weather on Dartmoor can change suddenly and unexpectedly and ALL types of weather conditions can be experienced. Please ensure that you have the correct clothing and map & compass (and know how to use them). Please do NOT rely solely on your GPS.

Each cache has been rated individually up to a maximum terrain rating of 4.5. (You won't need to scuba dive, rock climb, kayak or swim! But DO keep an eye out for Dartmoor's bogs )

I would like to thank the Dartmoor National Park Authority for their kind permission to allow me to place this series of caches.
