A breathtaking (in more ways than one!) circular walk along a section of the north Cornwall coast. The walk starts from the small village of Crackington Haven. Crackington Haven is popular with campers, walkers and geology students. The surrounding cliffs are well known for their visible folded sedimentary rock formations. The village gives its name to the Crackington formation, a sequence of sandstones and greyshales. The walk follows a fairly challenging route of the coastal path with lots of steep sections and steps climbing and descending throughout. There are free roaming goats and cattle on the coastal path so take care with dogs. The return leg runs alongside a stream within an ancient woodland and these paths can be very muddy after wet weather. There are three stiles, all with adjacent dog gates, and several kissing gates. There are public toilets just across the road from the car park. Approximate time 2 to 2.5 hours.
