The Lich Way is a long-distance bridleway that starts in Bellever and is named due to its historic beginnings.
In the 13th Century, residents of the small farmsteads in the surrounding area had to make the twelve mile journey across the moor to bury their dead at Lydford parish church. The word 'lich' has its origins in Old English, meaning 'body'.
The trail passes through Bellever Forest and proceeds out on to the moor.
