Stover Trail

About this route

The Stover Trail is a mostly traffic-free route which connects Newton Abbot to Bovey Tracey.  This flat, mostly off-road family friendly route passes close to the beautiful Stover Country Park and will eventually extend towards Lustleigh and Moretonhampstead in Dartmoor National Park.  A new bridge across the busy A38 dual carriageway ensures a safe crossing.

There are sections of the trail which are on lanes. Please click on this map for more detail.
