Mel Tor, Dartmeet, Dartmoor National Park

Mel Tor, Dartmeet, Dartmoor National Park

The Dart Gorge is one of the most beautiful areas in Dartmoor. It's lined with tors north and south of the river. Mel Tor is north of the river roughly half between Dartmeet and New Bridge. It's by Dr Blackall's Drive and the Two Moors Way. There's also a car parking area very close to Bel Tor Corner which means it's exceptionally easy to enjoy the tor's amazing views.

We've positioned Mel Tor on Google maps so zoom in on the 'Satellite' setting to see its location. To visit, head for the car parking area at Bel Tor Corner. This is situated between Poundsgate and Dartmeet and is marked on the Ordnance Survey Explorer OL28 'Dartmoor' map. From the car parking, follow the path south to Dr Blackall's Drive and Mel Tor. The tor across the gorge is Bench Tor. The pointy tor to the west is the appropriately named Sharp Tor.
