A circuit through the remnants of one of Cornwall's richest mining areas and on to Tehidy Country Park, for many centuries the seat of the influential Basset family. The route starts out along a breathtaking coastline of high cliffs and secret coves, where the waves have carved the rocks into soaring pinnacles and dramatic fins and cut away whole chunks of headland to leave clusters of tiny islands rising from a shoreline decked out in seaweed and rockpools. In summer the coastal heathland blazes with gorse and heather and the grass fringing the path is sprinkled with wildflowers.
