I use this path a lot, cycle from Plympton to Tavistock (but beware the gates - lots of getting on and off) and lots of different routes for running. Have recently started attending the ParkRun that is held here on a Saturday morning at 9am. Bring cash as there is often a coffee/ice cream van in the car park.

Cycle and walk the dogs here regularly. Stunning place. The route 27 cycle route takes you through some great scenery, out past the Skylark pub and onto Tavistock. The dogs love it here too.

A great start for any new cyclist. A slight steady incline through the woods ending at the Skylark pub on dartmoor. Burn off your pub lunch back down the trail to your car. Beautiful views!

Enjoyed walking this trail. Flat and pleasant and easy to walk. You have to keep your eyes open for cyclists - but it is a cycle trail!

A lovely long woodland trail on Tarmac with history to add to the interest. The Plym Peregrine project that runs in spring and early summer allows everyone a glimpse of these spectacular birds.

What I like about this trail, I have done it a few times now, is that it is really quiet as there are several parralel walks /cycle rides at the beginning so making it very quiet and never busy. Lovely scenery any time of year and a pub to finish with!

Love this trail! It is relaxing, scenic and usually quiet. If you have to come with a dog, please make sure you clean up after it - and don't just hang the bag in a tree!

Visited in glorious spring day from Plymouth park and ride car park by Plym valley railway just off the A38. Lovely route, gentle incline, nice wide track all the way to clearbrook alongside and high above the river. Beautiful scenery, old viaducts, tunnel and a pub at the end perfect. Then joined the adjoining drakes trail from Yelverton which eventually... More

A great ride, you feel the climb on the way up towards the end, but the ride back down is so easy and fast! Highly recommend starting from NT Saltram House.
