Walked from Bracken Tor YHA, could have parked a bit closer but good to clear your head with a nice morning walk. Great to see some ponies at last. Good views to Okehampton. With Coineanach Hutch #38 pillar of the trip

Pretty sure I've been here before whilst staying at the camp. I certainly remember the first time I visited that, being speed-marched up the hill from the town. Today I was viewing the local auction, so walked from there in a 6km round trip. Despite the fairly low cloud, the views were good, especially South across the moor and over the town. There has been some sort of concrete structure here before, the remains of which are close - probably something to do with the military during the war (Ahaa...see what Lathama says in his 2014 log).

Parked at 90deg bend in road to WNW, by Klondyke. Short walk up through gorse onto open short-grassed sheep pasture. Pillar has minor damage to one top edge; no centre cap or plug; rear sight hole open. Extensive panoramic views.

A fine little gorsy hill with a plethora of Shetland ponies overlooking Okehampton from the northern edge of Dartmoor. Easy walk up from the Dartmoor access road (old stone cross by roadside) though our visit followed a 10 mile walk around the NW corner of the moor from Meldon reservoir.

Have walked up and around this trig many times whilst geocaching and letterboxing, but never had my camera with me...Today I had my camera [yea!], took a photo - and my computer refuses to acknowledge that the camera is plugged in so I can load up the photo to the computer and then upload it here. I hate technology when it does this to me! Anyway the views from the trig point are wonderful overlooking Okehampton and beyond.

Great views over Okehampton from here! Pillar has plug missing. Two sight holes open. Vague traces of paint. On grassy plain surrounded by gorse. Pillar is slightly lower than summit and on exact summit are two stubs of substantial pillars alligned across the crest, plus a smaller stub as the third corner of a square. All have a small amount of residual metalwork projecting from the top. No obvious signs of a fourth. Looking at old OS maps, this may be the remains of an old tramway or some similar structure? Red flags visible today. Note added 2/10/14: Eric Hemmery in his book 'High Dartmoor' says that the pillars mentioned above are in fact relics of a WW2 searchlight installation.

It was difficult to say if there was anything of interest to see as visibility was so limited. However a brief respite saw the delights of Oakhampton below and heard the roar of the bypass. A pity the army can't keep its range roads in better repair or I would have made it up to Yes Tor. It'll have to wait until the summer. Been before and got views to Saunton Down Hotel on the North Coast but wasn't trigpointing then.
