The North Cornwall Trail

Age group: 7+

Location: NORTH Cornwall


Contact: Bodmin to Devon (via Bude)

TEL: 0300 1234202  


Hens Kernow Gleth. Overlapping with the West Country Way, the first part of the route follows the upper reaches of The Camel Trail out of Bodmin and onto the quiet lanes of Bodmin Moor.  


From the beautiful village of Blisland, the route winds its way to Camelford. Sections of the trail offer some lovely panoramic views across to the coast before dipping back into more sheltered valley bottoms.


Heading north, the trail crosses some of the most remote parts of north Cornwall


Once past the village of Hallworthy it is possible to choose between either a more strenuous route via the coast and the dramatic cliffs of Millook, or an easier inland route through Week-St- Mary.


From Bude the route turns east through the pretty village of Marhamchurch. The trail then crosses the county boundary into Devon and links into the National Cycle Network at Holsworthy.


The total length of this trail is approximately 40 Miles (65 km). Camel Trail bike hire.
