We're regulars along the cycle path...it's great for budding riders, speed cyclers, walkers, strollers and horses. Everyone seems to be friendly and considerate, and it's a joy to be in nature surrounded by glorious forests and rivers.

These paths, built over the old Plymouth to Tavistock railway line, is an excellent day out, although no toilets anywhere on route for several miles. Beautiful scenery to watch wildlife whilst eating your picnic lunch or snack, there are a few, very few, seats for...More

Cycle trail from Plympton to Clearbrook that takes you through the beautiful countryside along the old railway line. A steady incline but not too bad. Some nice views from on top of the viaducts on the way if you decide to stop for a break....More

We are lucky to have this place so close to home. Generally litter free and beautiful views from Coypool to Tavistock and back if your legs are up to the task.

This cycle trail meanders up through woodland from Coypool Park and Ride to Clearbrook, and you can then continue safely on to Yelverton if your feeling energetic. Leaving Coypool, the trail is flat and a little narrow, but after 1.5km the path climbs over a...More

from Coypool to Clearbrook, Yelverton and Tavistock - 22 miles of cycle track (some quiet road from Clearbrook up the hill to re-join the track behind the golf course). Often busy with walkers, dog walkers and children, care must be taken when passing others. Great...More
