When we visited early in the year after much rain the river was fantastic full of energy. Massive boulders in the river. Nice walk, quite easy wished it was longer.

Golihtha falls is nice but the path to get there is very cut up and uneven due to the bad weather in Cornwall the previous year. Need sturdy boots and no good for buggy's etc

For the best river-side dog wlk in a well-managed wood, there is nothing to better Golitha. Whatever the season, the river is always fascinating. And, you have the chance of interestign sightings of wildlife. Locals love it. Visitors will too.

Beautiful walk along the river Fowey, but recent floods have left it tricky for anyone unsure on their feet and is a no no for wheelchair or pushchairs.

Magical atmosphere with the sound of the falls. Great for a short afternoon's walk, good if you like photography.

Perfect for a stroll with tranquil picturesque surroundings, if you take the dog like me, would strongly advise an extendable lead as the water can be very fast flowing in places.....and it's all downhill.
