Peek Hill

Peek Hill sits high above Burrator Reservoir sharing the same ridge that links it to Sharpitor. A circular walk linking it to Sharpitor and Leather Tor is an easy undertaking at just a couple of miles of effort, especially given the many parking spots along the B3212 Princetown road which make an ascent very easy. The views are fantastic, not just to Burrator, arguably the best vantage point for this stretch of water, but also westwards towards Cornwall. Come here on a warm summer evening and watch the sunset. Fantastic. There is no military activity near this tor.
