Although this is a "cycle trail" it is also possible to walk along just keep an eye out for the cyclists! An autumn walk with two small children was perfect as didn't have to worry about cars! Trees changing colour, leaves being collected by the kids and exploring in the woods made a good active afternoon . All for free!!

Great cycle trail. A wooded area with plenty of parking and a good tarmac path to follow. There is a pub, the Skylark at the far end where you can have a refreshing drink before cycling back

Hadn't cycled this route for about 10 years.....unrecognisable now. Beautiful ride perfect for all the family. We parked on the road near B&Q. It's a gentle uphill gradient from there but our 8 and 4 year old found it easy going. Great to be easier on the leg for the little ones on the way back. As others mentioned a... More

This is an excellent cycle trail which takes you a long way up on to the moor with an imperceptible gradient along the route and track bed of the old railway until you chose if you want to leave at Goodameavy and then take the steep road up towards Clearbrook. It would involve a lot of work but it would... More

An excellent cycle trail which is very well maintained and goes for miles through the woods. A great day out.

Use this route many times. I park at Coypool and cycle from there. Slight incline all the way to Goodameavy. Passing through trees and over viaducts, also through a tunnel.

Started at the Plymouth park and ride at Coypool (free parking) - there is a bike hire shop here if you haven't your own - and followed the route which is very well signposted to Clearbrook (though it does go all the way to Tavistock) .To get to Clearbrook, with its lovely pub, you will need to take a right...

Cycled this trail at the end of our coast to Coast journey. Stunning views, well maintained track. Was down hill all the way to Plymouth!

Cycle off road on a disused railway track from Plymouth UK to Clearbrook and on to North Devon if you are really keen. Currently ( July 2014) the last stretch into Clearbrook is being finished and the diversion is via a fairly steep minor road. Once the Clearbrook ramp is done it will be a much more pleasant ride into... More

It is a cracking ride that can take you all the way to the edge of the moor and beyond. I had a cracking ride yesterday but was constantly looked at with distain by pedestrians who clearly were not aware it's a national cycle path. I had some even walk to block the path to make me wait to pass... More
