Walk - Dynamite Towans & Copperhouse Pool
6.1 miles (9.8 km)
Upton Towans car park - TR27 5BS Upton Towans car park
Moderate - Sandy paths through dunes, surfaced walkways, quiet country roads.
A fairly long walk on mostly level ground, travelling through the dunes to the South West Coast Path and passing through two Sites of Special Scientific Interest. It heads inland along the shores of the Hayle Estuary, where as many as 18,000 birds can be seen in winter, and returns via Phillack Church. As well as being a major centre of trade and engineering during the heyday of Cornish mining, Hayle was also one of the earliest centres of Christianity.
