Bellever Forest is based in Dartmoor National Park, Devon, UK. The East Dart River runs through Bellever Forest which makes a great setting for having a picnic. Alternatively you can enjoy several walks around the forest, or enjoy some great views from the top of Bellever Tor. This is the map reference for finding Bellever Forest using Google Maps – https://goo.gl/maps/2bsmxtHyRRB2
There are 4 trails that you can walk along. The Bellever, Easy Access, Postrbridge and Lich Way Trail. For more information on these trails, Click HERE. I have walked the Bellever and Easy Access trails, both of which were enjoyable.
There is parking and toilets. Cars and motorbikes pay £1 for up to two hours and £2 for over two hours. There is a flat rate for minibuses of £4.
Typical Dartmoor fog descends over Bellever Forest.
Dartmoor Ponies are common in the forest.
As its an active forest, tree felling is common place.
You get some really vivid colours too.
On a foggy day, the view from Bellever Tor can be restricted.

Walking on the Easy Trail is fairly well marked. About one quarter is on soft grass tracks, which can be muddy at times.

Bellever Forest is a fabulous place to visit, either to relax and take in the scenery or try out one of the walks around the forest and up to Bellever Tor.
