This small and easy walk mainly in Denhman wood lets you discover old Denham bridge (17th-century) and the banks of the River Tavy.
Calculated time is computed with the distance, the height difference, and an average speed of 2.2 mph. For an intermediate walker, this time includes small breaks.
Park your car at Denham Wood Forestry Commission car park.
(D/A) From the car park, follow the main road steeply down (be careful about the traffic!).
(1) After passing a house and before the bridge (take a look!), turn right at the broken barrier and follow the overlooking path along the river but never go down to the river. This path joins the track you need to follow straight during 250 meters.
(2) Leave the track and turn when you see an unmarked path starting left in the forest leading gently close to the river. Notice that you will see a few barriers protecting you from the slope. The way, a bit less clear, goes slightly up along a stream.
(3) Continue up, go through trunks and finally avoid a fallen tree until you reach the track. Turn right on this track and follow it for 1 mile before you will reach the car park.(D/A)

This stage is really an add-on to the official route. There is an option to use the Erme-Plym Trail that is, in itself, an add-on to the original Two Moors Way. This will take you straight to Ivybridge through Brixton and Yealmpton. However, this route takes you along the coast to Wembury. The ferry option reduces the road walking considerably.
