Walk - Talland Bay & the Giant's Hedge from Looe Station
7.3 miles (11.8 km)
Looe Station - PL13 1HP Looe Station
Challenging - There is a lot of ascent and descent, some of which is quite steep.
A varied walk taking in the beautiful wooded estuary of the West Looe River before crossing the coastal plateau to join the South West Coast Path and follow it from Talland back to Looe station. An inspirational walk for those who don’t mind a challenge, this route takes in an important ancient boundary wall, thought to be 1200 years old, through an old oak woodland teeming with wildlife. Dropping down into Talland Bay, whose secluded beaches were a haven for smugglers but a hazard for ships in south-westerly gales, the path hugs the shoreline as it returns to Looe.
