This pleasant trail is part of the NCN route 27 you start on Plymouth How and then ride around the barbican harbour area which is nice enough plenty of places to stop and eat here. After a couple of miles you enter the grounds of Saltram house which is a National Trust place with walks and rides around the grounds. Once you have worked you way under the A38 you enter the woods on the plym valley trail. this part is not great on one side you have a boat building yard and narrow paths the cycle along and on the other a restored railway which runs about a mile up the trail to the Plymbridge woods car park. Once you are passed this bit thou you are riding along side the river and above it. At certain times of the year you can see a Osprey nest site and the views are very nice. There is a new trail off to one side for mountain biking or you can stick to the main trail. Once you have gone through the tunnel up passed Bickleigh (Lights reccomended) you can stay on the trail but at the end you will need to walk up a narrow path and this will bring you out into Clearbrook which has a very nice pub with a beer garden.Or you can take the road (steep hill) up to the moor above Clearbrook and follow the edge of the golf course into Yelverton. Here there are acouple of nice cafes to get refreshments from.
A very pleasant ride but at times it does get busy you have to watch out for dogs children running in front of you and other cyclists who like to us this as a race track.
