I grew up near Plym Bridge forest and spent many happy days here during weekends and school holidays. The lane that runs from Coypool to Bickleigh is often used by cyclists but there are other paths through the forest where some degree of solitude can be experienced even during the height of summer. The river is exceptionally cold all year... More

Very nice place to walk and great with the dogs - lots of bikes as well so need to pay attention. Could do with somewhere doing hot food in this weather though.

A lovely and tranquil place, ruined by a sea of dog mess and aggressive cyclists. You can walk up an old railway line and the scenery is stunning and its very close to plymouth. Unfortunately this is where all the council house people from nearby, take their dogs for a crap. The place is AWASH with dog mess. I am... More

A beautiful spot sadly ruined by some dog owners who allow their animals to run wild intimidating walkers and of course dog fouling is a serious problem.

I'm lucky to live right by the woods. Opening the curtains and looking as far as the eye can see. Follow the path out towards the moors and you'll be lucky to see a car in three hours of walking.

Like to walk along beside the river so not bothered by cycles. Nice and relaxing. Beautiful at any time of the year.

If you are a walker and like to move in to the woods thick...flowing water...and only nature in your ears, Plym Bridge is for you. One can park the car close to the bridge and can take many paths available into the woods. Some of the paths follow the river and are fun to walk on. Water in the river... More

There are actually three woods connected here, and despite the car park being completely rammed, you can still walk a short distance and be on your own. There is evidence of historical quarrying, which is now beautifully overgrown and quite photogenic. A disused canal runs alongside the old railway line, which has long been a cycle path; but steam train... More
