Dartmoor - Belstone, Steeperton Tor Horseshoe

 UK Area: England
 Details: 16.3km, 424m ascent/descent, 4hrs. The route climbs steadily from Belstone by a progressively less obvious path to gain the ridge at Oke Tor then follows the ridge before dropping down to ford the Stepperton Gorge stream at Knack Mine. A short climb to the summit of Steeperton Tor is followed by a descent to ford Steeperton Brook. The path heads E, occasionally hard to follow, skirting Hound Tor towards Little Hound Tor before descending above Small Brook by White Hill. From here the route follows the Bridle Way, actually little more than sheep tracks, across the flanks of Cosdon Beacon, fording Lady Brook. Near a cluster of gorse bushes another path heads downhill to a standing stone (not on map) then drops left to join a path heading back to Belstone via a foot bridge over the Taw. Recorded 28/8/18
