How Geocaching Works

Please note Use of services is subject to the terms and conditions in our disclaimer.

Geocache Description:

A traditional cache placed near to the summit of High Willhays. At 621m, High Willhays is not only the highest point on Dartmoor but higher than any other location in England south of Kinder Scout in the Peak District. This cache is one of 21 caches placed on either Dartmoor's North Moor or South Moor which together form the Dartmoor Challenge series of caches.

The Dartmoor Challenge is a series of 21 caches which have been placed in some of the most remote places on either Dartmoor's North Moor or South Moor. Each cache has been placed to bring you to a special place on Dartmoor, often a beautiful stream, a striking tor or another of Dartmoor's endearing features. 

17 of the caches are traditional caches, 3 are puzzle caches and the final cache is a 5/5 bonus cache. In order to locate the bonus cache you will need to collect coordinate information which is available in ALL of the 20 feeder caches. Please DO NOT share this bonus information with anybody.

IMPORTANT NOTE: All of the caches on the North Moor are located in or near to one of the Military Ranges where live firing occurs. You must check out the Firing Notices before entering any of the ranges. DO NOT ENTER THE RANGE WHEN THE RED FLAGS ARE FLYING. Never pick up any 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.

I would like to thank the Dartmoor National Park Authority for their kind permission to place this cache, which has been placed according to the geocaching guidelines.
