Easy - There is very little ascent or descent, but the path travels through fields, so wear good shoes.
A fascinating jaunt through an ancient ceremonial landscape littered with stone circles and other monuments, some of them dating right back to the Stone Age. From the highest ground there are tremendous views over St Buryan with its sixteenth-century tower, the engine house of Ding Dong Mine, and the eighteenth-century Roger's Tower, a folly built on an Iron Age hillfort. There is very little ascent or descent, but the path travels through fields, so wear good shoes.
