Cox Tor is another popular tor and again this is due to its excellent location and good car parking at the foot of the tor. The views are also stunning particularly south and west, were Cornwall and Bodmin Moor can be clearly seen all the way around to Plymouth Sound in the south. Cox Tor can be easily linked with Roos Tor and the Staple Tors in order to make a longer walk. Cox Tor does not sit in a military firing range although north and east lies the Merrivale range beyond Roos Tor. This is a lovely tor for a family walk, made all the better by an ice cream van in the car park at the bottom. You can also get some great sunsets from here in the summer.
