We are lucky to have this place so close to home. Generally litter free and beautiful views from Coypool to Tavistock and back if your legs are up to the task.

A lovely down grade ride into Plymouth from Clearbrook. I really enjoyed the trail sculpture. Great tunnels and woods, brilliant scenery.

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
