Walk - Geevor Mine & Chûn Quoit
6.5 miles (10.5 km)
Pendeen car park - TR19 7DW Pendeen car park
Challenging - Coast Path, quiet roads, tracks, lanes, and footpaths across moorland that may be difficult to follow, so take care with the directions. There is a lot of ascent and descent, but most of it is not steep.
Starting at Geevor Mine, this long and fairly strenuous route loops around the remnants of the world-famous St Just mining district, climbing to the moorland above. Here among the granite tors are the sites of prehistoric settlements and some of the ancient monuments associated with them. The high ground that provided the earliest settlers with a strategic vantage point over the surrounding landscape provides dramatic views over land and sea. Allow extra time for guided tours round the Geevor tin mine and the Pendeen Watch lighthouse.
