Walking trails and routes Walking trails and routes
Walking routes along 300 miles of the stunning South West Coast path or discovering an inland path network of over 2,400 miles will include scores of special places in Cornwall. By simply taking a stroll along your choice of beach or meandering around one of Cornwall's many beautiful gardens and estates, walking is one of the most popular activities in Cornwall and no surprise given the diversity of our natural landscape and the prestige gained from Cornwall's designated Area of Outstanding Natural Beauty (AONB).
For news on any parts of the coast path that may have closures or diversions in place, visit the South West Coast Path website.
