Cornwall, England Map

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.

A lovely walk with varied views. Great to forage blackberries near headland section.

Lovely walk, no minions (Disney) or cheese on route though

Cracking trail, great views and good times

Lovely hike, but then there are no bad ones in this area!

Great walk with amazing views. As per another comment there is a field where you have to go all the way round rather than following the path described but otherwise really good. Mix of trails and roads so good for dogs.

Very nice hike with a sublime view with a stop in each of the two small villages, one to visit the church and the other to contemplate the view.

Lovely streams and mini waterfalls through the glen. The main waterfall was closed as we went after 4.30pm but caught a glimpse on the way down. A little muddy in places after heavy rainfall and the climb towards the waterfall and cafe was quite steep.

Loved all the mine ruins; another great leg of the coast trail.

This was my 3rd day on SW Coast trail, and although this is a great hike in many places, passing through Newquay was less than stellar thus only 4 stars.

I did this over a day and a half and it was simply spectacular. Continued on the 2nd day to Newquay. Can’t recommend hiking Cornwall enough.

A great walk with beautiful scenery. Good eateries at either location. Ground is moderate, however probably not the best route with strong winds.

Beautiful way. Plan a lot of time, there is a lot to see. A detour to Helford is worthwhile. Really cute place.

A great walk mixing inland with coast. Although easy to follow for us in mid summer there was one section where the crops in the field had hidden the path so just walk around the edge.

Pretty patch with lots of nice views. Lots of dogs poo on the trail. Looks where you steps :)
