Hazards=The Two Moors Way is a long-distance path that runs from
Ivybridgein South Devonto Lynmouthon the coast of North Devon, crossing parts of both Dartmoorand Exmoor(and passing into Somerset) along the way. The total length of the trail is about convert|103|mi|km|0|lk=on, and some sections are difficult in poor weather.
Although there is one most widely used route, passing through (from south to north): Hexworthy, Postbridge, Chagford, Morchard Bishop, Witheridge, Hawkridge,
Knowstone, Withypooland Simonsbath, during some parts of the Way alternative routes are possible, one of these passing through Holne rather than Hexworthy and Postbridge.
Allow for about 15 miles per day on the trail – though well-marked and mostly maintained, the going can be slow over the moor.
