Great cycle track. Best started from Plympton end. Slight uphill most of the way but you don't really notice until you're coming back and hardly need to pedal! Gets very busy with kids dogs prams joggers etc on sunny weekends but just keep going and you leave all that behind. Quite shaded and sheltered in places under the trees and... More

This is a great cycle path, it can get busy at weekends but you expect that, people do walk their dogs along it too, so you have to be careful but most people are considerate. It can be quite challenging in parts but that is all part of the getting fit

A fantastic cycle ride that will take you all the way up to Dartmoor with some great views along the way. The trail forms part of the Devon Coast to Coast) route and Sustrans' National Cycle Network route 27. There are cyclists and walkers on the path so care must be taken by both. But watch out for dogs that... More

This trail is a beautiful walk, love taking the dog there, as do many other dog owners. The trail is misnamed here, it's a public path, not merely a cycle trail. Maybe due to this misnaming, some cyclists (a minority) are extremely rude to walkers and joggers. This Sunday one swore at us as we walked our dog on her... More

It's flat and pretty, just right for families. Leads eventually to Tavistock. The viaducts are impressive

I have ridden this path many times. It is safe, easy and chillaxing, unless you really want to do some real off roading!

Parked at Saltram House (National Trust). Although parking is also available right at start of trail it felt a safer place to leave the car and gives the option of riding around the park and also to tie in a visit to the house. From the park there are signs guiding you towards Plympton and the actual start of trail,... More

I live very close by and love walking these paths (as I'm not a lover of cycling) especially at quieter periods as it is brilliant for seeing local wildlife and can be very peaceful, however it gets extremely busy during good weather.

What a fantastic place. I choose to cycle, but it is equally as accessible to walkers. Usually start from Coy Pool, but can also cycle / walk from Saltram or the car park at Plym Bridge. Steady incline up to Clearbrook and Yelverton, but lovely downhill on the way back. There is the Skylark pub at Clearbrook (excellent food :-))... More

I do this cycle trail regularly with my daughter (15).It is safe and has lovely views. Ice cream stop at Plymbridge. A slight up hill gradient but on the way back its brilliant. You dont actually realise that you are going up hill until the speed you can do on the way back. No effort at all
