Cub Rock

The name of this rock is derived from the infant badger that is known as a 'cub' and is therefore linked to, but a little further north of, the Badger's Holt honey pot location at Dartmeet that is popular with visitors to the moor throughout the year.

The tor there is covered elsewhere but here not far above the river on the east side is a large flat rounded bedrock with a smaller boulder resting atop. From below it does not appear as much but at closer quarters we have a fine looking outcrop.

Whilst the name might not be authentic, in the absence of anything else it seems appropriate and the views down to the East Dart are particularly good.


This outcrop is accessible to the public.
Enjoy, but please behave responsibly and always follow the Countryside Code.
