I walk here regularly. There are miles of well marked and looked after tracks. It is good for cycling, horse riding, walking with or without dogs. The scenery is beautiful, and there are secret ponds when you know where to look. I have been walking my dogs in the area for years and have found some lovely spots along the... More

If you like walking.... Then this is heaven. As the name has a tad giveaway... It's flat. Perfect for little feet and bigger. The dogs can run free... Not a car in sight. You might run into a few equines.... It might be me! And push bike riders. But on the whole it's really you and the footpath. Well worth... More

We started at Scorrier and cycled across the great flat load great cycle and good for children also. Good scenery and plenty of places to look at the scenery. Not so good if raining but enjoyable day out.

A proper walk through cornish countryside. Gorse and woodland then mine and engineering works. Lovely walk end to end but even better if occasionally you explore off the straight track. Couple if places to get a coffee or snack but why not take a picnic

A few weekends ago we cycled this trail ( 2 fairly unfit adults and a toddler) the views were spectacular and it was topped of with the most amazing view of the coast and Carn Brea where my partner proposed to me!! Would highly recommend, a place that will always be dear to my heart!

Just around a quarter mile from the Edward you will come across one of the most impressive granite mine building,The Wheal Grenville Fortesque pumping engine house. This huge building was constructed in 1892 and housed a 90 inch pump engine,park up and take a look... More

Very interesting area steeped in mining history. Walked around parts of it with the dog and really enjoyed it. Loads of people walking dogs or riding bikes. Nice to see the area being used to attract visitors instead of just being left.

A nice circular trail which takes in an astonishing number of old mines, which you would otherwise not see from the main roads. Mixed terrain, a few steep bits. Suggest going clockwise for the slightly easier rise. Suitable for a hybrid or mountain bike. Some places quite rocky or muddy as you might expect.
