Walking, running and cycling

Visitor running through the woods

There are so many ways to enjoy a visit to Parke. You could bring your bike, go for a run or walk, or go bird and bug hunting.


There's a maze of paths throughout Parke which you're free to wander. There are three suggested routes on our map,which will give you an idea of length of time and difficulty.

Whatever the time of the year though, please wear suitable footwear as the ground is uneven and you will come across tree roots and sometimes wet and slippery areas. 


Cycling is permitted on the old railway line which now forms a small part (about one and a half miles) of a cycle route between Bovey Tracey and Lustleigh.


As well as being able to run on any of the footpaths here, Parkrun have an organised run at Parke on Saturday mornings.
