Erme-Plym Trail

27 km / 17 miles

A Y-shaped route in the south west corner of Devon mostly in pleasant rural landscapes with views to the edge of Dartmoor. From Ivybridge, at the southern end of the Two Moors Way it leads either to Plymouth, some 13 miles passing through the villages of Yealmpton and Brixton, or using a short spur south from Hollacombe Hill to Wembury, that provides a link from Dartmoor to the south coast.

The route is comprehensively waymarked.

North from Sequers Bridge, near Ermington, it includes the former Erme Valley Trail to Ivybridge, with this section now part of Two Moors Way/Devon Coast to Coast Walk that uses the Erme-Plym Trail option to Wembury. See Two Moors Way.
