Walk - Hooe Lake Point & Earls Drive
3.1 miles (5.0 km)
Maker Church car park - PL10 1JB Maker Church car park
Moderate - Footpaths, rough in places and with some steep descent, and a long tarmac drive heading gently uphill
A short stroll downhill to a rocky shoreline prized by geologists and dotted with the remnants of fishermen's cellars and Georgian military defences. The walk starts from Maker Church, with panoramic views over land and sea. The fallow deer grazing among the ancient trees in Mount Edgcumbe's deer park are descended from the herd introduced at the start of the sixteenth century, and the route returns along the eighteenth-century carriageway known as Earls Drive. Make time for a picnic on the open grassland at Minadew Brakes, where you can watch the ships go by.
