Geocache Description:

A cache placed close to the waterfall on the East Dart river.

The waterfall on the East Dart river is one of only a handful of waterfalls on Dartmoor.  Because Dartmoor is largely flat without many steep sided valleys, there are not any really spectacular waterfalls and hardly any on the more remote parts of the moor.  The most spectacular waterfall is probably that at Lydford Gorge with a 30m drop, but England's "highest waterfall"  at Canonteign, in my opinion doesn't count, as it is not natural but a man made folly!

Even if the East Dart waterfall does not have a great drop, it is nevertheless fairly spectacular when the river is in spate, but very enjoyable at all times.  However, do take extreme care when crossing the river and often the East Dart river will NOT be crossable at this point, so return to Postbridge on whichever side you happen to be.

Many thanks to the Dartmoor National Park Authority for their kind permission to place this cache, which has been placed in accordance with the guidelines.
