Walk - The Gannel from Newquay Station

3.1 miles (5.0 km)

Newquay Railway Station - TR7 2TS Newquay Railway Station

Moderate -

A walk along the bank of the River Gannel (south of Newquay), once a bustling waterway but now a tranquil creek where wading birds forage for worms in the mudflats and curlews call from the fields above. Gulls wheel overhead and oystercatchers pipe shrilly as they strut along the shoreline among the boats.
