Perfect for stress free cycling

Lovely spot to cycle with the family, and really well maintained route. The views are spectacular and the bonus of cycling over two viaducts!

We love taking the kids along the Granite Way. If you get up to Meldon Viaduct (2miles from the train station in Okehampton) in the summer, you can ride back on the train with your bikes. A real treat for little ones with wobbly, tired legs!There is also a cafe carriage at the Meldon stop. This is a very popular... More

We took a mini break and brought our bikes. Glad to find the Granite Way which connects with many other cycle routes in the area and made for some nice rides.

I have walked the entire length of the granite way over the years. With stunning views of Dartmoor and lovely fresh air you couldn't ask for more. Perfect for Sunday stroll, Jog or A bike ride. With no traffic it's perfect just to let the kids run free. With a couple of pubs stop off at various points. Recommended for... More

I picked up the map from the hostel and it was easy to follows. There were lots of people walking part of the way (I walked the full length) and even more people on bikes. I arrived at Lynford only to find that I had missed the bus and the next one was not for another three hours. So if... More

We cycled the Granite way from Lydford to Okehampton and found the trail to be very picturesque despite the drizzle and low cloud. We stopped for a bite to eat at Okehampton station and diverted a little off track on the return journey to visit Meldon reservoir and dam. If back in the area we would do this cycle trail... More

We were looking for somewhere nice to walk where we could also push a baby buggy easily, and the Granite Way fitted the bill. We walked from Okehampton to Meldon Viaduct. It was an easy, pleasant walk next to the Dartmoor Railway. At an easy pace, it takes about an hour each way. There are occasional nice views and our... More
