The Highway Code must be obeyed and hi viz garments must be worn by the fist and last member of a team.
You will also see that there are green dots on the MiniMaps. These mark the location of stiles, gates and gaps in walls and fences.

Please help the National Park Authority to maintain gates and stiles by reporting any damage or other problem at Report a path problem | Dartmoor . If you identify the location of other gates or are unable to report problems, please inform SWHQ-TenTors-MAILBOX@mod.gov.
