Was quite hard for my 73 year old mum but it was enjoyable nonetheless

Beautiful variety of scenery and outlooks around St Mawes. Although we are keen and proficient walkers; this was not an ‘easy’ route. Some very steep ascents and descents on the route - not for the faint hearted. Overall very pleasant but caution required in assuming this is an ‘easy’ and gentle route.

Very good. Variety of scenes, more up and down than expected. The section leading down to Porth Creek featured barbed wire on both sides of narrow descending path. There should be a law against it! “Section 164 of the Highways Act 1980 says new that barbed wire on land adjoining a public highway must not cause a nuisance to humans or animals using the highway. Anything placed below 2.4 metres high will usually be deemed to be causing a nuisance and the local authority can issue a notice demanding its removal.”

Good trail easy to follow. We started from the boathouse ( where you can park free on the road)!and went round anti clockwise to finish past the castle and into the town for a couple of pints in the Victory Inn. About 2 hrs with George the Cocker Spaniel in tow who enjoyed himself on a hot July day

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.

First to Review

Trail was very hemmed in on the eastern side. Lots of brambles - wear long pants. Western side along the coast was nice. Good views back to Falmouth.
