North Corn­wall Coast Path, Corn­wall

Trail Running (UK) - - Routes -

This fan­tas­tic stretch of the 630-mile South West Coast Path takes in some of the high­lights of the north Corn­wall coast. Start­ing at pretty Pad­stow Quay­side there’s a gen­tle warm-up along the Camel Es­tu­ary, edged by white sand and blue sea to the right, and green fields to the left. Climb­ing up to the head­land at Step­per Point, it’s straight into clas­sic Cor­nish coastal scenery, with rugged, rocky cliffs dot­ted with the pale, sandy cres­cents of the bays. Reach­ing Trevose Head you’re greeted by views of most of the north coast, from Pen­deen in the south to Hart­land, over the Devon bor­der, in the north. From here there’s a long stretch of golden beaches and in­tri­cate coast path that’s a joy to run, all the way to the vast sands of Water­gate Bay, of­ten voted one of the best beaches in the coun­try. The fi­nal miles take you to the fin­ish at Towan Head, just out­side Newquay.
