I took a wrong turn after Princetown and ended up heading towards Dartmeet. I could have turned back but instead decided to take off on an off-road route marked as difficult on the map.
Paths had eroded quite badly - I'm not sure that even the most experienced mountain biker could have passed along much of this path. After carrying the bike across stepping stones, and waded through a river, trudged through a cow field, I made it back to a tarmac road.
The rain never relented. I kept going - often having to get off and push up the steeper hills in the Chagford area.
