Winter Tor

To be honest Winter Tor isn’t much more than an extension of Higher Tor up the hill, The outcrop of rocks itself is pretty impressive and the views are good, especially over to East Mill Tor across the East Okemont Valley, but that is pretty much it. You’ll be wanting really to get up to the higher spots of Belstone Tor and Higher Tor rather than linger too long here. This tor sits on the edge of the Okehampton range so you must obey and red lights or flags that indicate live firing is taking place. The best way to this tor is either starting out from Belstone or by parking on the road out to Rowtor and walking along the path across Cullever Steps
