Fancy a challenge? ...but a challenge with amazing, memorable views and experiences?
Walk the Trail has split the entire 630 mile coast path down into 3 partsCommencing from St Ives, the Land's End Peninsula with its unspoilt heather covered moors and rugged granite cliffs, passing engine houses, chimneys and winding gears - important reminders of Cornwall's tin mining heritage - along the way. Pause at dramatic Lands’ End...next stop America!
Be enthralled by the magnificent Minack Open Air Theatre, which perches dramatically on the cliff edge of Porthcurno, pass through picturesque, pretty Mousehole and bustling Newlyn harbour before arriving at vibrant Penzance in the far west of Cornwall, close to beautiful St Michaels Mount, the walk moves on to the unspoilt Lizard Peninsula, with smugglers coves aplenty before crossing the tranquil Helford River to bustling Falmouth.
Then cross the water on to Roseland Peninsula, un-crowded even in the height of the season, one of the most picturesque and unspoilt areas within the United Kingdom.
A rugged roller-coaster walk now begins, along the Cornish Riviera from Portloe to Looe; easy walking along scenic clifftops, through coastal woodland and country parks. Pass through the ports of pretty Mevagissey and atmospheric, historic Charlestown, and beautiful Daphne du Maurier country surrounding Fowey, before entering Devon and the vibrant city and naval port of Plymouth.
