Dart access

Post by brigadoon »

Trying to organise a trip on the Dart loop, consulted Dart Access website but appears a little out of date - is there a shuttle bus running this season??

thanks

Cool, take it still required to park at Newbridge and get shuttle back from Holme Bridge to start? (excuse my ignorance but it's been a while!)

The Driver said to us that may not run depending on the level being too low and this would be decided on a Friday by the National Park - not sure how it would be decided or communication though.

Only takes about 15 minutes to walk back to Newbridge from Holne Bridge up the road. Worse case scenario leave your boats at Holne bridge down by the water out the way and walk back to the car. Have carried my playboat over the hill before but that is an effort. Plenty to lock boats to at the take out for the loop. There is that long wooden fence running down form the wall.
