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

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, good fun wizzing back down. Good to paddle on the river at the end.

I use this path a lot, cycle from Plympton to Tavistock (but beware the gates - lots of getting on and off) and lots of different routes for running. Have recently started attending the ParkRun that is held here on a Saturday morning at 9am. Bring cash as there is often a coffee/ice cream van in the car park.

Cycle and walk the dogs here regularly. Stunning place. The route 27 cycle route takes you through some great scenery, out past the Skylark pub and onto Tavistock. The dogs love it here too.
