Dartmoor 'Eastern Fringes' Treasure Hunt & History Trail

Opening Times

Dartmoor (East) Treasure Hunt & History Trail (3 Aug 2018 - 30 Nov 2018)
Monday - Sunday00:00 - 23:45
Exercise body and mind this Summer (and on into Autumn)! Starting at Bovey Tracey, the Dartmoor 'Eastern Fringes' Treasure Hunt & History Trail incorporates a prize Treasure Hunt within a trip around some beautiful countryside and lovely villages, revealing some of the historical and literary/cultural associations of places visited. A Main Trail is to be navigated using a car or other vehicle – and this is supplemented by 4 optional Walks that also include treasure hunt questions. A separate Youngsters' Challenge is included to give children/teenagers something to occupy them on the Trail.
There are really 3 Treasure Hunts within the package!: the Prize Treasure Hunt (answers to be submitted by end of November 2018); an 'informal Treasure Hunt' (answers available online); and the 'Youngsters' Challenge' (answers available online). This all adds up to the perfect Summer/Autumn activity – for visitors and locals alike. Beware though, some of the questions can be quite challenging – you might end up spending a more time than originally planned on the Trail!
