Named after one of Devon's most famous sons, Sir Francis Drake, the Drake's Trail project, launched in March 2009, includes a range of walking and cycling routes in West Devon for all age groups and fitness levels. The new off-road cycling route follows the old railway track between Tavistock and Plymouth, crossing open moorland at Roborough Down before reaching the wooded valleys of the River Meavy and eventually the River Plym.
Superb cycle way
Cycled to Plymouth and back on this fantastic route with ever changing scenery that was a joy
2hrs and a lovely route. We had a fab walk
See deer in the woods and watch the rivers for kingfishers, herons and spawning salmon.
