The Camel Trail
The Camel Trail is an 18 mile largely traffic free, surfaced and virtually level multi use trail which passes through some of the most spectacular countryside in the south west.

Following a disused railway line once used by the London and South West Railway, the trail follows the Camel Estuary from Padstow to Wadebridge before joining the route through the deep and beautifully wooded Camel Valley to Bodmin. At Bodmin, yet another line, one of the most historic in the country, winds its way inland to the edge of Bodmin Moor where it comes to an end below Blisland, an extraordinarily pretty moorland village with an award winning pub.
Landscape and wildlife designations abound, contrasts in scenery are striking and access to country and seaside towns provide opportunities to use local shops, pubs and visit attractions. Visitors can easily hire bikes in Padstow, Wadebridge and Bodmin. The trail provides access in to the heart of North Cornwall, and experienced cyclists can make off, away from the trail exploring the many villages and country lanes which lie close to the trail.
