What a lovely walk. Stunning views. A bit muddy in places but not a problem for good walking shoes. A put stop in the Carbis Bay hotel about half way helped. We are not avid walkers either so it’s not too difficult. A great way to spend a few hours.

A good trail between st mawes and st just, beware livestock and if it’s been raining then the path can be particularly muddy at points. Good run though.

Whilst it is a lovely hike, at the moment the second half of the walk around the lake is totally flooded. The first half is on a higher path and unaffected. It is possible to make your way around the higher paths in the second half though it will add distance. Lots of birdlife and good views, nice variation in the hike too.

Beautiful beach and dune walks close to the cliff edges and past seal colonies. Fifty shades of blue, green, yellow and brown-read. But also a huge detour through the backside of Hayle and along a busy road. Which also spoils the view on the river estuary. 1 star less because of that.

Beautiful colours of sea, rocksand plants. Especially when partly clouded and the sun bursting through every now and then. Very friendly people at the cost guard station of St. Agnes Head. In the last stretch before Portreath I wondered why the British Ministry of Defense has fields of couliflower growing. No answer yet...

A lovely walk. Looe bar has quite a few works going on when I did it. Started at Helston Car Park, which is free, and heading down what would be the left side as you head down towards Looe bar. Lots of birds on this walk and really enjoyed it.

Lovely walk through native woodland very peaceful, lots of wildlife along the route especially beside the river. Nice surprise to find the cycle hire shop selling coffees.

Great walk scenery fantastic really good cafe at Tallend Bay

Beautiful walk with fantastic views. Encountered a few fields of cattle around the farms and although they were OK, we had to detour on the final part as they were surrounding the footpath and we had a dog.

Walked to the start from Marazion Caravan Club site and noticed that there was only parking for 2 cars in a small layby. Beautiful walk along quiet lanes and enjoyed our time at the castle. We took the ferry across £2 per person, dog went free as the tide was in. Returned across the causeway. We checked tide times and this worked out well because as soon as the causeway was accessible, there were masses of people crossing onto the island. Dogs were not allowed in the castle or gardens.

Parked at Penrose Hill National Trust car park (£2 donation for non members)and walked clockwise around Loe Pool finishing off with tea and cake at the Stables tea room. Beautiful walk with dog with plenty of opportunities for her to have a swim. No livestock or stiles and good underfoot although some care is needed over the far side of the lake where there were tree roots.

A really great trail, cows, horses, and amazing views. We stumbled upon it by accident when visiting Tintagel Castle, so we weren't in the most appropriate footwear, but managed it all the same in my vans :D

Ran early September. Poor trail considering this is a recognised route. High overgrown paths, muddy, poor signage. One section takes you on a very fast and busy road with only an overgrown bank to step into to get out of the way of oncoming traffic. Would be dangerous to walk with children and very difficult with dogs due to the road section. The rest of the walk is ok but a little boring...get to the coast instead! Use insect repellent, conditions mean lots of midges!!

Very good trail, the coastal route is spectacular. The inland route is a bit fiddly with some walking on quiet roads and a few stiles were in very poor condition. Took us about 4.5 hours with a few brief stops

Blustery morning so really exposed on the coast path but once turned inland wind settled down. Fine for dogs in general, one stretch of busy road so just need to be conscious of when to keep on lead.

Absolutely spectacular views all the way. Probably the best piece of coastline anywhere in the South West

A must for anyone who loves walking the Cornish coast, taking in some of the most breathtaking views anywhere in Cornwall.
