From Assycombe Hill, returning to the road by the track over Merripit Hill. White Ridge is Dartmoor’s answer to Mungrisdale Common: on paper, a dull walk, but actually a surprisingly enjoyable exercise in striding out across the grass, with tors and points of interest visible all around.Nick Down113/07/2019
easy going on a sunny eveningcjo30/03/2019
Sunny moorland walk after parking by track to the SSE then bagged Assycombe Hill and White Ridge.Dugswell229/03/2019
With Jenx and Bryher from Warren House Inn on the B3212. Nice dry lines to top with expansive views inc Water Hill and Assycombe Hill Found out later that we had just missed the lesser spotted Doug skulking through the grass just earlier in the morning :-)nordicstar29/03/2019
Beautiful day for strolling on the moor.jenx29/03/2019
On a glorious morning walk with Assycombe HillPoolton12329/09/2018
Enjoyable drive/walk circular route in cloudy weather with one short shower. Excellent visibility. Hitched a lift to Warren House Inn from Postbridge, ascended Winter Hill then fast path to stile and on to overgrown stone row and on the invisible cairn. Took a bearing to flat, featureless summit plateau, a worn patch at the given GR indicating the summit - but I wouldn't bet my life on that! Great views in clear visibility.Dartmoorman17/07/2018
From Fernworthy Forest, good parking at SX 6607 8367. Track runs SSE to edge of forest for Assycombe Hill, then followed edge of forest to here. On to Cut Hill and others. Thankfully very dry underfoot, but very hot.jonglew27/06/2018
From Bennett Cross via Assycombe Hill. My 2000th tump, only 50yrs after the first!Moorponder21/06/2018
A sparse dusting of hail stones echoed its name. It's a bleak boggy place with no distinct HP . Returned to carpark near Scatts BridgeDenise 11/02/2018
From Assycombe Hill along edge of forest. An expansive essentially level area of rough grass, wet in places.RichardM11/02/2018

Continuation from Assycombe Hill. Headed west along the forest edge to a stream, then up onto the flat plateau. To descend, took gate into forest north-east of the plateau, then tracks down north to the lane, then east back to the car park. Solo.Man of Kernow101/05/2017

Easy parking in Fernworthy Forest from where a good forest track leads to the edge of the trees. Go through a gate and follow a track almost to the top. The final 200 yards are guesswork, but otherwise an easy walk.moorsman22/08/2014

CUHWC Dartmoor Trip. Same as Mark. What a day!AGWilliamson11/02/2012
Walked up from Postbridge in strong winds, driving hail and six inches of snow. Not a sign of life anywhere. Views of the moors under snow were excellent.Herbert Anchovy31/03/2010
Ascent made 3/4 mile NE of Warren House Inn. I went over Assycombe Hill and on to White Ridge. The top is unmarked. On the return to the car there was a heavy snow shower giving a dusting.isabelle19/12/2009
Don't even attempt to find this top in poor weather! Use a GPS and even then it's debatable where the highest point is!!!Ianto&Sue16/03/2009

A long walk from Bellever, taking in Hameldon, Hockney Tor, Challacombe Down, Birch Tor, Assycombe Hill, White Ridge and Merripit Hill. I didn't enjoy this one, very boggy and Fernworthy Forest spooks me out for some reason.Jake99401/08/2006
