The Copper Trail is a walking route on Bodmin Moor.

In total the walk is approximately 60 miles in length, passing through the many and varied landscapes and villages on the moor with the village of Minions a popular starting point. 

The Copper Trail is so called because one of its most noticeable features are the abundance of disused Copper mines that can be seen along the route, especially at the start at Minions, situated in one of Cornwall's World Heritage sites. There is a real mixture of landscapes along the way from the high moorland to wooded valleys and arable farmland. There's also plenty of history to be seen dating back to Neolithic times...

There is an excellent guidebook to the trail that describes the route and gives some history and insight into the features that can be seen on route. 

You are also advised to purchase the OS109 Bodmin Moor Explorer Map. Both guidebook and map are available from Tourist Information Centres at Bodmin, Launceston and Liskeard.
