When I say a little way it's actually about a mile from our front door and it takes you as far as you want, all the way to Plymouth.
The old railway line from Tavistock to Plymouth.
The trail has been missing a link (the bridge opened in 2012) and it is now a cycle track. Yet, here we are at the end of 2013 and we still haven't ventured along it. Until this week.
We started at Tavistock and walked to Gem Bridge. A round trip of 3 miles, a cold and windy day, wellies, hats and gloves required!
The trail starts off walking through fields
and by the river.
And then you reach Grenofen tunnel, it goes under the main A386 Plymouth -Tavistock Road.
It was dark and very wet! The boys loved it!
You can see through to the other end.
There were a few reminders of the recent storms in our way.
But the views from the bridge down the valley were amazing.
All my boys on the bridge!
