A tarmac surfaced Cycleway, maintained by Devon County Council. It has parking at bothends and at all road intersections. -Bridestowe Road, Sourton Village, and Sourton Water Works. Seating is available intermittently spaced and the track has been thoughtfully designed to have some shape by allowing...More

Only managed a short (6 mile each way) 'out and back' from Okehampton in the middle of a residential holiday. Stunning scenery, moor on one side, open valley on the other

A great way to travel we hired bikes and found the distance just about right with a stop for tea. It’s car free and probably more downhill going towards Lydford . The two viaducts offer stunning views and it was very safe being traffic free....More

Asphalt path made the ride safe and comfortable. The viaducts were brilliant for amazing views. Kept stopping to take photos of the wildflowers on route.

Hired a bike from the excellent Granite Way cycles in Okehampton (£12 a day for a brand new bike!). Despite the cold (still snow on parts of the track), I had a great ride down to Lydford and beyond. There are a couple of spectacular...More

The fact that we had just started day 2 of our two day C2C, it was raining and we'd just had to climb out of Okehampton might have put a dampener on this experience. But no. Stunning landscapes, one of the best cycle paths in...More

We were staying on the nearby campsite and decided to go for a walk on this path towards Okehampton. It turned out to be a very nice and quiet walk with a lot of beautiful views over the Devon countryside while underway. Particularly the area...More

This is a great resource. It’s a very well maintained asphalt track that runs from Lydford to Okehampton. There are great views to be had and it follows an disused rail line. So, unlike most of Devon, it’s nice and flat. Bear in mind that...More
