This is a great walk with plenty of lovely scenery and lots of historic mine workings. It is pretty flat and is good for dog walking too. Strong boots are recommended and a light coat even in Summer as it can be windy. There are miles to walk if you are able.

Beautiful trails taking you through wonderful countryside. Well signposted, easy to follow. Amazing historical engine houses everywhere! Some which you can explore. There is a pub called The Countryman nearby serving real ales and home cooked food.

At this time of the year the brambles and undergrowth are rampant. Also the word 'Flat' is a misnomer.....it isn't.

I rented a bike and did this trail (4) times in July. Each time, I rented the bike in Bissoe and biked to Portreath via various routes. The trail is mostly flat with gentle inclines. The route offers plenty of places to stop and relax or explore along the way. If you intend to go to Portreath, there are some... More

The trail is a great place to walk or bike on, with many different exit & entry points depending on how far you want to go. Also very good for trail running.

Lovely trail, nice wide walkways suitable to walking, cycling and horse-riding. Many areas are flat, however can be a hill to climb to get onto the track. We lived near the Redruth side and it was a 10 minute walk to get the track and from it we could access Carn Brea Hill which is great for walking up. There... More

This trail is fantastic for cyclists, horse riders, runners and walkers alike. We do all of the above except horse riding and love it, especially when it's been wet and it gets a bit muddy! You can't beat a good cycle ride in the mud! It's only 5 mins from our house so we go a up there a lot.... More

This is a good spot for a family walk or bike ride, mix in the mining buildings and that adds to its value. Can be a bit exposed to the wind in the winter, but still lovely on a crisp winters day.

I have always been interested in the industrial history of our country, and the GFLT provides a valuable insight into how important tin and copper were to Cornwall during the 18th and 19th centuries. The trail consists of a signposted walk of some 3 miles that passes by many of the most famous mines from the county's past, such as... More
