Please be aware of livestock and take care along the road for the first stretch of this walk.
From the parking area either follow the path starting in the corner of the car park and then head on to the road nearer the cache or alternatively start by walking on the road verge.
On the way to this cache you have lovely views over the Blackslade area and you can see the track which you will return on. As you walk along the road on the hill to the right you can see Nutcracker Rock. It got its name as locals used the rocking logan stone to crack their nuts. The remains of the Rippon Tor logan stone can be found here which was about 11 feet long and weighed about 14 tons. Originally it could be rocked by hand but unfortunately it no longer rocks due to vandalism, having survived the weather conditions for tens of thousands of years.
The cache is NOT in the wall.
Please replace in its correct position.Thank you.
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 and compass (and know how to use them). Please do NOT rely solely on your GPS.
I would like to thank the Dartmoor National Park Authority for their kind permission to place this cache, which has been placed according to their geocaching guidelines.
