Nice easy flat walk. Good for dog to just run with no worry of traffic. Come here at least once a week to walk the dog. Peaceful and beautiful views. Good for cycling too

Excellent views, a very level cycle path unusual for this area, fine unless you don't like heights as the meldon viaduct is quite spectacular.

This is great for a traffic free cycle ride. Spectacular countryside views and very child friendly as no motor vehicles allowed. We combined this with a trip to National Trust site of Lydford Gorge. There are a few pubs to stop off for food or...More
