Summary: The Granite Way is a 10 mile walking and cycling route which runs along the northwest edge of Dartmoor following roadway, bridleway and a disused railway line which used to be part of the Exeter to Plymouth railway line, itself being part of the London and South Western Railway. The route generally runs below the granite cap of Dartmoor National Park. The Granite Way which travels from Okehampton and Lydford visits Meldon Viaduct and Meldon Junction, Prewley Moor, Sourton, Lake, Bridestowe and Fernworthy Down. The route has links to some other footpaths in the area, namely the Two Castles Trail and West Devon Way.
