Dartmoor - Sourton Tors and Meldon Viaduct Circular

 UK Area: England
 Details: A flat start along the Granite Way is followed by a stiff climb from the Lake Viaduct on unmapped paths up Lake Down to Sourton Tors. The route then descends steadily to briefly join the West Devon Way before skirting South Down, with views of Meldon Reservoir to cross the West Okement River. Passing under the picturesque Meldon Viaduct the route leaves the road to descend steeply to cross back over the river before climbing through woods to rejoin the West Devon Way to Meldon Village before passing under and then onto the Granite Way to the starting point. (Toilets en route at Meldon Reservoir Car Park) Note: the route cannot be shortened by taking the path that crosses it at SX 532 894 - the Granite Way is in a cutting and the other path is on a bridge. 11.8km, 411m ascent/descent, 2:50hrs. Recorded 5/9/18
