Marked on OS maps, Hunter's Tor (Hunt's Tor) occupies a spectacular position high on the hillside to the north of the River Teign.
Views from the summit rocks are dramatic particularly to the east along the gorge towards neighbouring Sharp Tor that resides in the Parish of Drewsteignton.
Old photographs from c1860 included in a book by Tom Greeves (2015) show that this area was once free of vegetation and the tor clearly visible on the steep slopes.
