Hucken Tor

Hucken Tor is a small tor with most of it hidden in the trees to the south of Merrivale village. Its a fairly easy walk to get there, starting at the Dartmoor Inn in Merrivale and heading along the lane through the trees to the south. Once across the bridge its a simple ascent up through the trees and gate to the tor, with a surprising amount of rock within the trees below. Popping out the top on a small flat rock gives great views to the west over Pew Tor to Cornwall and to the north lies Great Mis Tor. There are no military ranges around this tor.
