Distance:5.2 miles

This is an invigorating but delightful and most rewarding 5.2 mile linear route avoiding busy roads and following quiet residential roads and public footpaths or bridlepaths.

It avoids the main road to Exeter by following a new cycle path to St Katherine's Priory.

From here it turns North through Mincinglake Valley Park (once containing a fishlake created by the 'female monks') and joins the Exeter Green Circle , a popular trail around Exeter.

Descend to the university then follow the Two Counties Way and branch off towards Exeter Cathedral.

Some of the tracks can be quite muddy after heavy rain.

There are several ways of doing this:

1) From Pinhoe to Exeter, and take the F2 or B bus back.

2) From Exeter to Pinhoe, taking the bus back.
