Green Lanes

Hey guys,

So I often scab info off of here and tend to impart little though I try where I can.

I did a quick search for green lanes on the site and, other than a petition to stop them being closed I didn't find much...

I thought it might be a good idea for those of us who like to responsibly use our BOAT's and UCR's to share their locations. Whether it's ones we use near home or have on our travels, and even ones abroad. Stranger things have happened than finding a forum member lives where you're planning your next trip!

I don't know if this thread will take off or be of use so instead of waffling on I will put an example of what I thought up and see if anyone's likes...

Lopwell Dam between Plymouth and Tavistock... go in to the village use the tidal (subject to tide and vehicle capabilities) dam crossing that takes you up a nice easy hill climb through woods. Has some rocks to play over but would rate it beginner. Once spat out half a mile or so later on a road turn left down to hamlet, left along gravel creek road to where it becomes a tougher track. There is a painted sign saying unsuitable for vehicles but this is a warning that the track gets deeply rutted (lift and all terrains suggested intermediate level) and not a no entry sign. There is a deep ford crossing at the end of the track that I've looked at and reckon it can be crossed at low tide but as I've not plugged up rear vents or have a snorkel I've not attempted... there are also a couple of other trails near here.... I will put more info up if it takes off.

Hambleton Street in the north York moors. It is a section of the Cleveland way designated as BOAT but doesn't see a great deal of vehicular traffic, so is a good one if you don't want to be bumping into others. Entry from the south is from Sneck Gate and the road heads more or less north out of the village, right over the moors for about 10 miles. You could then head east on completion and come back over the moors on Rudland Rigg which is a well documented green lane.

There's some absolute crackers up on the Moors, Rudland Rigg is particularly good

Took another one on the way to Dartmouth today a mile or two long. Went very narrow and I had to get the chainsaw out and cut a fallen down tree that was blocking the track. Truck is scratched a lot DOH

It's as you go towards Dittisham take a right at
Downton cross and keep going past farm and houses til you see a sign saying unmettaled rd... it spits you out down at Old Mill Creek
