Brief Route description?:

The Family Cycle Trail follows the Dean’s fully surfaced disused rail network. A truly attractive route.

The trail is also used by walkers, you’ll need to be considerate.

When I did the route the signing wasn’t good in places and I had to retrace my steps a couple of times, but it was the end of the season and some of the signs were temporary where some detours were in place. I’m pretty sure this wouldn’t normally be the case.
