Hare Tor

A new area for us this time, the Willsworthy range has been on the radar but travelling north on the road from Tavistock we’ve headed for Lydford Gorge or Yes Tor instead. This time however we have parked at Lane End and tackled the area around Hare Tor. In hindsight we should have headed for the better path at White Hill after we crossed the leat, the way we went was far to boggy. The weather, however, was superb and the views across the Cornwall make the climb worthwhile.
