This country park trail offers the bike rider over 3 miles of traffic free, safe woodland paths for cycling. The park includes a lake, leafy glades as well as wilder areas of woodland with rich flora and fauna. Tehidy is the largest single area of woodland in West Cornwall and a valuable part of the Cornish countryside and community. With new interesting things happening throughout the seasons, it is worth a visit all year round.
The 250-acre estate was opened in 1987 and was once owned by the wealthy and influential local Basset family, who made a fortune from mining tin. The Basset family obtained the Manor of Tehidy in the middle of the twelfth century. Carn Brea Hill has a large granite monument on its highest point, which was erected to the memory of Lord de Dunstanville, a member of the Basset family- who died in 1835.
The county council purchased the estate in 1983 and turned it into a recreational country park including woodland trails, horse and bike trails and a sensory trail for the visually impaired.
The country park is located about a mile and a half from the coastal village of Portreath and is situated in a valley of one of the upper tributaries of the Red River, which flows into the sea near to Gwithian.
The park also hosts a variety of facilities including an events field, where a range of activities are held, barbeque hire facilities in a specially designated woodland, a summer and winter events programme, outdoor education facilities, a permanent orienteering course and a schools and youth campsite.  
Tehidy has a circular walk, which follows a mainly level unbound surface around the historical estate and is wheelchair friendly.
Some signs already exist along the trail, pointing out suitability for cyclists or pedestrians. Separate signs will be included in the future.
The park can be accessed from a variety of car parks situated throughout the estate. The main car park is on the far eastern end by the main entrance to the park along Cot Road.
