Where a military track, known as 'Dinger (Tor) Road', halts in the Okehampton Range, and the plateau drops to the West Okement River, a fine tor can be found with great views south to Fur Tor and Lints Tor down in the valley. There was once an Observation Post at Dinger Tor, OP 20, that served the military before it was demolished. Now, all that remains is a military telephone point at SX 58611 88103.
What is most noticeable in the tor's rocks is the remarkable horizontal jointing, best appreciated when seen up close. Josephine Collingwood (2017), in her book 'Dartmoor Tors Compendium', describes the phenomenon; "This shows pronounced horizontal jointing which makes for intriguing patterns; like someone has sliced through layers of plasticine. It is in fact the release of pressure from outlying rocks that created the joints."
Dinger Tor while isolated benefits from the track that connects it to the car parks and access points nearer Okehampton Camp, making for a pleasant stroll to the tor from the north. To the south, the wilds of North Dartmoor open up while to the north-west, High Willhays resembles little more than a small bump though it is well-connected with a well-trodden grassy track to the summit.
