King Tor is situated on the eastern side of Dartmoor with fantastic views eastwards towards Moretonhampstead on a clear day. It sits out on a spur from the main Hameldown/Hookney Tor ridge and a visit to its top is normally preceded or followed by visits to these other tors. King Tor has a large cairn on its northern face and then heading further north takes you to rocky parts and the views . Being situated this side of the moor means it is nowhere near any military firing ranges.
