Easdon Tor

East Down Tor, Eastdon Tor

A very prominent granite tor sitting atop the highest point on Easdon Down. A trig point caps the summit and is best accessed from the bridleway to the south.

The views from this patch of open moorland are fantastic, ranging from Cosdon Hill and Yes Tor westward, Castle Drogo and Mardon Down to the north, and Haytor Rocks and Hamel Down southward.

Hemery says of the outcrops; "Easdon Tor is neither massive nor high but consists of a great rock-field of several ridges in an advanced state of ruin."
