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...More

Cycled with 9 and 11 year olds and dog. They all managed easily. Dramatic viaducts and a long tunnel to go through which was fun. Take your own food and drink as there is nothing along the way. Slightly up on way out of Plymton,...More
