The two moors referred to are Dartmoor and Exmoor, Devon, southwest England. Both moors are important nature reserves. In between the two moors the trail winds through a forlorn rural area.
Expect a hilly terrain, which means a lot of climbing and going down. Apart from open moorland, there is much wood, especially in river valleys, and of course agricultural land and surrounded by typical robust Devon hedges. Unfortunately, England has fallen prey to the intensification of agriculture as elsewhere in Europe, and hedges are being removed.
The path is not much frequented by hikers. Perhaps the reason is the vicinity of popular venues like the South West Coast Path. A pity: the Two Moors Way shows a unique piece of England.
