Walk - Kilminorth Woods from Looe Station
4.0 miles (6.5 km)
Looe Station - PL13 1HP Looe Station
Moderate - Although there is some ascent and descent on this walk, only one short stretch of it is steep.
A stroll through one of the largest valley oaklands in Cornwall which is also a nature reserve teeming with wildlife, especially in spring, when blossom tumbles through the wild cherries and banks of primroses and bluebells are followed by wood anemones, wood sorrel and dog violets. Look out for herons and Canada geese on the water, and sparrowhawks and peregrines overhead. Songbirds trill from the ancient oaks, and woodpeckers can be heard drilling for insects. If you're lucky you might catch a glimpse of a roe deer, or a kingfisher.
