Slip away from the lively seaside town of Perranporth for a day and discover the historic landmarks on the route that connects it to Portreath. This trail follows a landscape once crucial to coastal mining, and as you wander the cliff top walk you’ll enjoy unbeatable views of the area.
You’ll see many a relic from the area’s mining past as you make your way along this 12 mile route, as well as some stunning geology too. Look for the coloured mineral stripes in the rocks around Cligga Head and if you cast your gaze down to the beach below them you’ll see copper staining.
There’s something for the animal lovers amongst you too, as if you keep your eyes peeled around Newdowns Head you’re likely to spot the odd seal. The walk ends in the pretty fishing port of Portreath, and it can be a challenging route as there are lots of ups and downs. You’re also likely to catch sight of kittiwakes, guillemots and razorbills along the way.
