Starting from Lydford join The National Cycle Route No27 where it crosses the path of School Lane near to Lydford House, which is just 100 yards from the cycle path.
Cycle along the path in a southerly direction which will take you past the village of Lydford and onto the old Lydford Railway station after about three quarters of a mile and then out past West Blackdown and North Brentor.

After cycling along the path for about four and a miles past West Blackdown you come to Tavistock and as you cycle along the cycle path you will pass the site of the old Tavistock North Railway Station which is the suggested end of this ride.
