Moderate - There is not too much ascent or descent but the path can be exposed to sea winds so wear warm clothing.
A walk to blow away the cobwebs, travelling alongside the railway line high above St Ives Bay, through an area noted for rare wildflowers and migratory birds. A number of Celtic saints are said to have established chapels here in ancient times, and the old pilgrim route St Michael's Way follows a parallel path across the railway, while an eighteenth century St Ives mayor set up his own eccentric tradition at an obelisk along the way. There is not too much ascent or descent but the path can be exposed to sea winds so wear warm clothing.
