Okement Hill

Okement Hill is a fairly nondescript lump of a hill, however it sits in high company with Hangingstone Hill one side and High Willhays to the north. It is a fairly easy summit to reach as the tarmac army tracks reach all the way to the top and the observation post that sits there. This also means that it sits deep into the Okehampton firing range so obey any live firing warnings. Views to the north are fantastic with High Willhays and Yes Tor one side and all the way across past Steeperton Tor to Cosdon Beacon on the other.
