We use the granite way regularly with our young family. They love cycling and it gives a relatively easy and safe ride off road for them. As a parent this gives piece of mind, my 4 year old how ever good he thinks he is would terrify me on the road with random stops to look at newts etc! The views in the first section from Okehampton up to meldon are limited but the view from the viaduct is fabulous. When the trains are running it is great to see them pass. The carriage cafe is basic but friendly but has unfortunately been closed recently. The second section to Sourton is more pleasant and my kids love the quirky Highwayman's Inn. The rest of the route up to the A30 includes Dartmoor ponies and great views. The half mile on road is unpleasant especially with young riders but worth it for the extra distance.
