Walk - Coverack and Black Head
4.5 miles (7.3 km)
Coverack Car Park - TR12 6TQ Coverack
Moderate - There are some steep stretches of ascent and descent and the path is narrow and rocky in places.
Starting in the fishing village of Coverack, one of only three places in Britain where the junction of rocks between the Earth's crust and the mantle below it is on display, this invigorating coastal walk visits the crumbling ramparts of a prehistoric cliff castle. There is an optional detour through a sculpture park, and some stunning sea views from Black Head, as well as a wealth of wildflowers in spring and summer. A good walk for older children, especially if the sculpture garden is included.
