Ryder's Hill, Devon


  • Located in Dartmeet, Devon, South West England, England
  • Dartmoor National Park has two areas of high moorland that are bisected, roughly speaking, by the B3357 which runs east/west across the Park
  • The highest point on the south moors is Ryder's Hill. At 515 metres above sea level, it provides big views of Dartmoor and South Devon
  • To visit Ryder's Hill, we'd recommend starting from the (limited) parking area by Combestone Tor. It's a fairly easy slog uphill, across Holne Moor, to the trig point pictured. The terrain can be very boggy, however, so good boots are a must
  • To the north east you'll see Venford Reservoir. To the south east is Snowdon (Dartmoor). The very distinctive, submarine-shaped summit to the south is Eastern White Barrow. To the west are the rolling moors of the southern section of Dartmoor. To the north west, you'll see the high moors and tors of the northern section of Dartmoor
