Walk - Tregantle
6.5 miles (10.5 km)
Tregantle layby - PL11 3AZ Tregantle layby
Moderate - Quiet country roads and lanes, footpaths and the Coast Path. There are stretches of ascent and descent, none very steep. The route travels through the MoD range at Tregantle, which is closed to the public when live practice is taking place. An alternative route is available if this is the case. For further details see here:
A long loop with an optional shortcut (when the MoD practice range is not in use), taking in the best of Cornwall's 'forgotten corner'. Features along the way include a tiny medieval market borough with stone crosses and a haunted coaching inn, and one of the ring of 'Palmerston follies' built to defend Plymouth during the Napoleonic Wars. Travelling high above Whitsand Bay, the footpaths follow ancient routes and medieval green lanes inland through woodland and heathland, past wetlands full of wildlife.
