Moderate - Coast path, inland paths, tracks and lanes that may be muddy, some steep ascent and descent.
A loop through a rocky wilderness of plunging crevasses and soaring granite buttresses, where buzzards wheel over the downs and young seabirds call from their nests on cliff ledges. The coastline has been sculpted and hollowed by the crashing waves which wash around the islets just offshore and through the caves they have carved at the base of the spectacular cliffs. At Porth Chapel there is an ancient hermit's chapel and well above the sandy beach. Above it, the inland footpaths around the church at St Levan follow routes that have been waymarked with the same stone crosses since medieval days.
