I do this route everyday, come rain or shine! Totally love it! Totally super to bike it, watch out for them horsey people and dog walkers, oh and doggy poo! Good views and lots of ruins to explore too! They should stick a pub half way along it, it would make a mint!

This trail takes you back in time, following the paths that link the old mines and out outbuildings to each other in an area called the great flat load. We bought a trail leaflet from King Edward mine complete with tracing paper and special pencil so that we could take rubbings at the points of interest along the way. The... More

Free parking and lots of long trails to follow on foot or bike. Some good long circular routes and plenty of mining history and good views. Take a picnic (no catering on site), its a great way of breaking up the bike ride.

I visited this trail with a friend who lives in Cornwall, on a sunny day in August. You can download a map from the web and start at any point that suits you. The circuit forms part of the Cornish Mining World Heritage Site, and is a walk of about eight miles around Carn Brea, over moorland, via footpaths, roads... More

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
