Description

Along the Granite Way from Sourton to Bearslake - Alternative/loop route from Stage 2 This loop or alternative route from Sourton to Bearslake follows the Granite Way for around 1 mile. This route can be used at the start of Stage 2 of the West Devon Way to avoid having to cross a number of stiles at field boundaries on the main route. The route is flat as far as the impressive Lake Viaduct, with one steep descent from the Viaduct.
