I walked this route in early may, and had great weather all the way. I did it in 5 days, which was quite a challenge, as I was wild camping, and carrying all my own gear. I would definitely recommend it. Some of the views...More

There's not much I can add to the comprehensive reviews on this site, except for the following, I believe, important information. We did this walk in late May, and were warned that there will be rain and mist possibly obscuring the path. Better advice would...More

The Two Moors way is a spectacular route. You can carefully prepare and walk the whole route over about a week depending on your fitness level. However, you can opt to do parts of it, or do circular walks. A walk I often do is...More
