A day of steep climbs and descents through an area of ancient mines, many of which are now home to bats. The area around St Agnes Head is a favorite for birders.

Veiligheidsaanwijzingen

Please take care while walking along the coastal path as some sections can be narrow and may have exposed cliff-edge walking. If any erosion has taken place a diversion will have been put in place so please follow these diversion details and signs where necessary. 

Beware going around Penhale Camp, the MoD sight. 

Guidebook/ Map

If you wish to carry a hardcopy map, you can print off the daily maps directly from our app. However, if you wish to look at a map, we would recommend purchasing the guidebook Trailblazer's Cornwall Coast Path: SW Coast Path Part 2 - Bude to Plymouth by Henry Stedman & Joel Newton - this has daily maps with added information and guidance on the trial and the surrounding area.

Tochtbeschrijving

*** To help you follow the route with confidence we have provided these route notes to help you. The South West Coast Path is well waymarked, but we strongly suggest that you follow the GPS tracks in the Macs Adventure smartphone app to ensure you have a safe, enjoyable and problem-free day.  The daily maps can also be printed from the web version of the app should you wish to take paper copies with you. ***

 

The first 8-mile stretch passes through terrain that is mostly heathland which at one time covered the whole of the west of Cornwall. The walking is relatively easy and you should be able to crack on and make light of the few ups and downs, the most severe of which is down to Chapel Porth.

The last 3-miles of today’s walk is alongside heavily fenced MoD land. The path keeps to the edge of the cliffs and on the seaside the views are spectacular but it is hard to ignore Penhale Camp and its concrete buildings. The path goes through the village of Portreath where you will find your overnight accommodation.

 

*** This is the end of our Perranporth to Portreath route. Please use your included documentation to find your overnight accommodation. For those doing one of our shorter/longer walking itineraries you are likely to be walking onward to overnight in Hayle - Please move onto the next route in the Macs App which is Portreath to Hayle ***

Aankomst met de trein, auto, te voet of met de fiets

Uitrusting

Sturdy hiking boots, layered clothing items, and a waterproof/wind-break layer may all be required. The weather in the south is usually better than the rest of the UK and temperatures can sore, especially in the summer months. Make sure to check the weather before you go to see if you need suncream or a waterproof layer, as the weather can change quickly.

Ensure your phone is fully charged; if you doubt the battery will last throughout the hike, it could be beneficial to bring a power bank.

Take plenty of water for the day's walk - especially if a high temperature in the summer.
