Great Mis Tor is one of the larger tors on the moor sitting high above the River Walkham and Merrivale. Along with North Hessary Tor and the mast this is one of the few tors that can been seen from the north moor end of Dartmoor. There are plenty of parking spaces along the Princetown to Tavistock road from which to start an ascent of this tor. The views are fantastic in all directions, with Plymouth Sound in view on a clear day. Great Mis Tor lies on the edge of the Merrivale firing range and a military flag pole sits on its rocks at its summit indicating whether entry beyond is allowed.
