Most of this 3.5 mile walk on the South West Coast Path from Perranporth is fairly level and provides excellent cliff top walking. From start to finish you can experience the mining heritage, as well as keeping your eye out for the birdlife and wild flowers. This walk is particularly good for dogs as it passes beaches and pubs where dogs are welcome.

Wow what a view the whole way, not overly taxing but is steep in places and you are on cliff edges in places so not great if you don't like heights. The history surrounding the landscape is interesting plus seeing the planes & parachutists land...More

A nice walk with 6 of us including our mother who doesn't really do hill walking. Didn't take too long. There was a lot of we birds for the twitchers but a good walk for everyone

Cligga Head is an interesting site, a mixture of a big mining complex over the years, but was also part of the Alfred Nobel Explosives Factory which took up the airfield site until the 1920s. There are many mine workings, adits, tunnels, bunkers and storage...More

A great, easy-to-follow coastal footpath from Perranporth to its neighbour St. Agnes, a bit uneven in places, but fairly good to walk on for most people. Stunning sea views all along this stretch, with a break for mine buildings at Cligga and Trevellas valley, remains...More

A great walk with plenty to see. the start can seem a little steep if you park on the beach in Perranporth but that is the worst of it. It took us about 4 hours to amble across the clifftop trail but we did stop...More

Wow!! This was a beautiful walk, stunning views, some old mining buildings to have a look at. It is very costal, with some steep drops, I would be a little nervous taking a young child along some of the paths, however there are some higher...More

Well it was a bit of an adventure getting to St. Agnes, as the lanes are extremely narrow in places, but it was definitely worth the effort. As we were treated to real delight. The views of the coast line are just wonderful, which is...More

Firstly I would recommend personally you take the walk from St Agnes on to Perranporth. I found the hardest part right at the beginning, and the views as you walked towards Perranporth of the beach were breathtaking. I was staying in Perranporth but you could...More

The cliff to walk is signed at the start of each village. Follow the path that is closest to the cliff edge. Avoid the misleading sign near St Agnes which points to the airport. Beautiful scenery. Enjoy!
