Walk - Looe, Talland & the Giant's Hedge
7.4 miles (12.0 km)
Millpool Car Park - PL13 2AF Millpool Car Park
Challenging - There are some fairly steep uphill climbs, but the last mile or so is mostly level walking. People with mobility problems can enjoy this section with its views of Looe Island - start from the Hannafore area of West Looe and follow the Coast Path westwards.
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. Children will love to follow the ancient earthwork through the woods above the river, and the tiny smugglers' beach at Talland. A wonderful walk in autumn, when the trees start to turn and birds and small mammals rummage through the woods to stockpile supplies for winter.
Use this walk (or part of it) to visit the beach at Talland Bay. This walk is particularly good for dogs as it passes a beach and pubs where dogs are welcome.
