Yes Tor trig pillar stands at 619 metres (2,031 feet) above sea level. It is the second-highest point on Dartmoor with outstanding views in all directions.
About Yes Tor
The most captivating views from Yes Tor are those to the north where the rolling hills of Exmoor melt into one another, while much closer to home looking towards the east stands the rocky crest of the Belstone Tors, with the great dome of Cosdon Hill standing sentinel above the Taw Valley.
This great ridge can be traced from left to right where it reaches Hangingstone Hill at 603 metres (1,978 feet). Southwards the North Moor broadens, a phenomenal and awe-inspiring piece of country, extending into the remote wilderness, capped by the twin heights of Cut Hill and Fur Tor. To the right of High Willhays’ outcrops the castle-like rampart of Great Links Tor stands illustrious beyond the West Okement Valley, while to the right of that Bodmin Moor stretches away towards North Cornwall.

Dartmoor National Park
Dartmoor is a unique protected landscape in Devon, with rare wildlife and free roaming livestock and ponies. Made up of 954 square kilometres (368 square miles) of open moorland and deep river valleys, the landscape is punctuated by exposed granite tors, providing vital navigation markers and rest stops.
There are plenty of opportunities to explore the wildlife and heritage of the park on foot, by bike, horse or on the water. The long history of Dartmoor can be discovered in ancient Bronze Age burial mounds through to mining landscapes of the medieval and Victorian eras.
