White Hill

White Hill is a small hill sitting right in the middle of the Willsworthy Firing Range, not far from here is the proof that the army use the moor in anger as the rifle firing ranges are just to the south of this summit. Don’t get this one mixed up with Whitehill Tor on the southern edge of the moor, near to Lee Moor.As a result of all the army activity, the paths up from the A386 are very easy to follow and tarmac most of the way. The views from the summit are excellent, across to the west is Cornwall and the Lydford Gorge, and to the west and north are all the tors around Great Links Tor. A lovely hill that places you in a good spot to explore further. Just be wary when heading here and check the firing range times before entering.
