As it suggests, the name of this tor is down to the fact that three barrows or cairns lie at its summit. The largest of these is the largest cairn on Dartmoor at over 40 metres in diameter. There is an OS trig point for company as well and plenty of views on a good day down across South Hams to the sea. With Butterdon Stone Row, Piles Hill and Piles Copse all nearby there is plenty of history in the area. The easiest way to the top is to follow the Two Moors Way path from Ivybridge, If however you are feeling fit then you can walk up from Piles Copse in the Erme valley (crossing the Two Moors path), I have done this and it was tougher than it looked. There are no military ranges near here.
