Cub Rock

Cub Rock SX 67320 73686

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.

Outcrop above Badgers Holt SX 67320 73686

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.

Cub Rock SX 67320 73686 and Tim Jenkinson

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.
