Brilliant trail for all levels. Lovely woods full off bluebells. The woods are well maintained with very little litter or dog mess. The paths are kept clear with good clear signs and directions. FREE

We chose to cycle along this route instead of up over Dartmoor due to bad weather. The cycle path is hard surfaces all the way and an absolute testament as to how cycle paths should be!! You go over viaducts, bridges and all sorts and...More
