Heads of the Rivers Trek - No 10 West Dart Head
A very short trek across the moor takes you from the head of one of the great Dartmoor rivers to the head of another. The Tavy and West Dart heads are only 0.4 mile apart but they take very different routes to the sea. Another difficult spot to hide a cache, so another hint and spoiler.
This cache may contain part coordinates for the bonus cache: Heads of the Rivers Trek - Inward Bonus

IMPORTANT NOTE: Most of the caches in this series are within the Merrivale Military Range where live firing occurs. You must check out the Firing Notices before entering the range. DO NOT ENTER THE RANGE WHEN THE RED FLAGS ARE FLYING. Never pick up any metal objects, they may be unexploded devices.

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.
