The Dart Valley Cycleway is a mostly off-road route which passes through Totnes mid-way, between the villages of Dartington and Ashprington. There are rewarding views and interesting places to visit on this trail which, though strenuous in parts, has some level sections too. The route is equally as good for walkers as cyclists but be mindful that there may be bikes around.
If walking, why not vary the route to and from Ashprington by taking the cycle route on the outward journey and returning by the footpath?
