List by Activity


The Hill & Moorland Leader Award (HML) is for people who wish to lead a group of hill walkers in non-mountainous hilly terrain in the UK.

Before undertaking the HML Assessment you should have completed the three day Hill and Moorland Leader Training Course.

You will be assessed on your skills concerning group management, navigation, emergency procedures, access and conservation.

As well as learning the above skills you will also pick up useful hints and tips from how to best organise yourself on the hill, to identifying the many plants and animals on Dartmoor.

As with the HML Training, the Assessment group will be run over three consecutive days.

Taking your Training Further
Leaders seeking to take groups into the mountain terrain should register for the Mountain Leader Award, although the HML Award can be a valuable stepping stone for those wishing to progress to the Mountain Leader scheme.

Qualified & Experienced Staff
These courses will be run by either John or Steve. John holds the Mountain Instructors Award whilst Steve is a qualified International Mountain Leader. Both have a passion for Dartmoor and adventure travel.

We can arrange your accommodation for you - there are hotels guesthouses, hostels and bunkhouse if you prefer not to camp. On Dartmoor many people choose to stay in our Bunkhouse at Powder Mills. If you live locally to you are very welcome to travel up and join us each day.
