This short route packs quite a punch in terms of the variety of terrain and views. Tucked away amidst city suburbia we have a disused railway line, creek, lake, parkland and woodland on offer. Phew! There’s a bit of elevation too but plenty of elation as you enjoy plenty of ‘what’s around the corner?’ moments. Keep an eye open for the shipwrecks!
This Cornish caper is best served up by taking the short 8-minute foot ferry from Stonehouse to Cremyll. The magnificent Mt Edgcumbe Estate delivers some testing uphill sections…but the coastal and city views are spectacular rewards. Stunning!
A gorgeous woodland exploration that features the ‘highs’ of the Plym trail above and the ‘lows’ of the Plym river below. Whatever the season, enjoy the stunning panoramas. A route good for the sole and great for the soul.
Don’t be put off by the unassuming approach to this green urban corridor of a run. The verdant Woodland and Budshead Woods escort you as we head out to Ernesettle Creek with its beautiful vistas and interesting wildlife. An equally rewarding trip home. We save you from tackling a big climb at the end. No paddle provided either!
The tranquil River Plym will escort you as we get you upwardly mobile into the majestic Saltram House and Estate. Myriad woodland trails will be the reward for your efforts and the route comes with a high point offering wonderful views. A trail-run to savour.
A pan-flat 5k that heads out along the Plym Valley Trail, with the steam railway for company, and towards Plym Bridge – home to another of our SixPack challenge routes. The return home is across riverside meadows and engaging woodland before a short urban finale.
