Cornwall’s Mining District is home to a 60km-plus network of multi activity trails. Routes such as the Coast to Coast and the Great Flat Lode Trails while being mainly traffic-free, offer improved and safer access to schools, places of work, local facilities, historic settlements and visitor attractions. The network of trails also offers people a unique opportunity to access our internationally important mining heritage.
Much of the trails network closely follows the tramway and railway routes once used to transport ore and vital supplies to and from the area’s many tin and copper mines to ports such
as Devoran and Portreath.
Whether you are a walker, cyclist or horse-rider, the expanded network offers extensive opportunities to exercise both mind and body. It combines better access to the carefully conserved remains of this unique mining area with spectacular views and exceptional wildlife.
