excellent cycle path but RUINED by mindless idiots who think they have a god given right to the woods and think CYCLISTS should not be on the CYCLE PATHS and take it upon themselves to scatter roofing tacks along the path and causing punctures.
So just take care if you are on a bike or if you child is on their bike or you are just out walking your dogs.

A little gem among the city. A fantastic place for a walk or cycle. no cafe at the moment but one is planned. Would recommend the restored railway at marsh mills open most Sundays.

From the A38, turn off at the Marsh Mills roundabout in the Plymouth area, and follow the signs to Plympton, then the brown signs to Plym Bridge. Free parking at the bottom of the hill for about 50 cars. No toilet or cafe.

Leave the car park, and go up the track to the left onto an old railway track, which is now a Sustrans cycle track. You can follow this for about 6 miles towards Dartmoor, going over some viaducts with marvellous views, and even through quite a long dimly-lit tunnel at one point. Up to this point, it is a tarmac surface, so also ideal for wheelchairs and pushchairs. It rises very gently all the way to this point, so it is downhill going back! Shortly after the tunnel, it gets narrow and eventually goes up a steep stony track to the village of Clearbrook, where there is a pub serving meals.

There are alternative paths going off at various points, which are not tarmac, but give a lot more theoretically cycle-free areas to explore, including some lovely riverside paths, which are popular with children swimming in the summer.

There are ruins to explore along the way, many with information boards.

Visited during winter but had a lovely walk alongside the River Plym but no where close for refreshments ended up in a pub near Asda. Good place to take children when weather warmer.
