The West Dart River is one of the two main tributaries of the River Dart in Devon, England.

Its source is near Lower White Tor 1.5 km north of Rough Tor on Dartmoor. It flows south to Two Bridges, then south east past Hexworthy to meet the East Dart River at Dartmeet. Tributaries include the Cowsic River, the Blackbrook River, River Swincombe and the O Brook on the right bank, and the Cherry Brook on the left bank.

Near Two Bridges is the broadleaves Wistman's Woods, a "fascinating high-level woods that are quite unlike anywhere else".[1]
