A short, one mile, walk from the remote and picturesque sandy cove of Porthgwarra up to the lookout post and towering granite cliffs of Gwennap Head. It is very popular with birdwatchers, especially in autumn, with its hen harriers, merlins and short-eared owls, and the occasional American vagrant landbirds that turns up in the flocks of migrant birds.
