Geocaching is a modern day version of letterboxing using a GPS.
See if you can find the caches hidden at Parke. GPS units are available to hire - £2 for half a day - please book in advance.
Running and walking
You're free to run or walk throughout Parke, but if you'd rather follow a set route, there are three mapped out.
Your dogs can come with you too, but please keep them under close control.
Alternatively, you can try Parkrun, a 3 mile (5km) cross-country route every Saturday morning at 9am from 5 April - sorry no dogs for this organised event.
Get wild in the outdoors and see if you can rise to the challenge. Lots of the things in your scrapbook can be done here at Parke (the record stands at 35 in one day). We've put a few suggestions on a map for you, to help you get started.
Look out for summer events which can help you fulfill some of your 50 things:
- Sticks and stones on 31 July - Parke stone skimming championships and small scale raft building
- A night in the Parke on 13 August - a wild camp with loads of activities
- Bushcraft bonanza on 28 August - have fun learning to light fires and building dens
Choose an activity below, then check out the kit bag page. The activities can be done anytime and anywhere, but be careful when the rivers are full and fast flowing.
When you're an experienced explorer see what you can find on Dartmoor. Don't forget to get the grown ups to read the safety tips before you set off. Ok, ready... steady... go
