Distance: 5.5 miles (8.5km)
Ascent: 293 metres
Start/finish: Rough Tor car park, PL32 9QJ

Leave the car park on the obvious path south-east towards the rocky summit of Rough Tor (1 mile/1.5km). Run east downhill along rough paths and aiming for the De Lank River bridge just upstream of the walled fields (1.5 miles/2.4km). Cross here and take the track uphill and trending R or south to the trig point on the summit of Brown Willy (2 miles/3.3km). Leave the summit going north on vague paths trending R to stay on the higher ground of High Moor and contouring around Roughtor Marsh to your L (3.4 miles/5.5km). At grid ref SX160821 near some small pools turn L onto paths around the head of the marsh to the end of Roughtor Plantation (3.9 miles/6.2km). Find the track that goes north-west through the middle of the woods and stay on this as it curves to the L, joining Lower Moor Plantation and emerging at the start.
