I love this path. A nice gentle rise to the moor. My 5 year old can cycle the full length - it is that smooth and gradual. Great for family rides, spinning or a warm up / down for a hard work out on the lumpy terrain. Views are stunning too from the viaducts.

A perfect way to spend a morning...stop at the sky lark for light refreshment then it's downhill all the way back to Plymouth.

Love coming here as it's perfect for a family bike ride. Beautiful riding in the woods and amazing views when looking over the bridges.

An amazing location to explore by bike or foot, beautiful wooded valley with a tarmac cycle path all the way to Clearbrook, filled with old mine workings, workers cottages and viaducts. A gem within Plymouth for all the family.

A great place for walking, cycling, camping or just simply relaxing in the countryside with a city within 3 miles.

A nice, smooth cycle path, along an only railway track, immersed into the wood. This is my favourite place for a relaxing cycle route

A great cycle path that brings you up to dartmoor. Always busy on sunny days. Beware of people bringing dogs with no leads

We recently cycled this as part of a journey from Plymouth to Cardiff. Very impressed by the standard of the trail and the amazing tunnels - make sure you have good lights fitted as it's pretty dark in there!

I have spent many a pleasant day on the Plym Valley Cycle Trail, not just on bikes but on foot too. The trail follows an old railway, many years disused, but you can find evidence of its past along the route. It goes through beautiful woodland, following the beautiful river Plym. There is lots of history along the trail and... More

Superb track now tarmacked all the way to Clearbrook and the fabulous Skylark inn where you can re hydrate and enjoy some great ale and food.
