Another small gathering of granite for a tor of modest height, the assembly of the rocks has meant that a small shelter has been created which is useful in rain! However the walk from the car will not be more than 10 minutes as the road at Beatland Corner sits a short distance away. The main reason for coming here are the views to Plymouth Sound which are superb. To the south of Hawks Tor lies the remains of RAF Hawks Tor, a WW2 radar station for detecting low flying aircraft, there were two structures holding the radar alongside buildings and huts. Concrete plinths can still be seen which supported the radars. There are no firing ranges near this tor.
