Walk - Perranporth YH - St Agnes
4.2 miles (6.7 km)
St Agnes Perranporth Youth Hostel
Take the bus to St Agnes and walk back along the top of high cliffs, through the silent remnants of what was once one of Cornwall's busiest mining areas. In summer this is a riot of colour, with gorse bushes, wildflowers and banks of vivid heather leading down to the mineral-stained cliffs startlingly red against the blue sea. There are some stretches of very steep ascent and descent, and in places the stony path passes close to high cliffs.
