Track simplification
This 25 mile long trail connects the popular tourist attraction of Land’s End in the far west to the small town of Hayle on the north coast, taking in coastline, small fishing villages and towns along the way. Leaving Land’s End and heading east through Sennen, along quiet lanes, the trail leaves the spectacular coastline and enters the historic, folklore-rich landscape of West Penwith, passing through small, quaint villages on the way including Mousehole and the beautiful wooded valley of Lamorna.
After the busy fishing town of Newlyn and the bustling promenade of Penzance, the trail emerges on the sheltered and contrasting south coast. This flat, wide and scenic track takes in beautiful views of Mount’s Bay and is a predominantly traffic-free route connecting Penzance with Marazion. From here, the popular National Trust property and garden of St Michael’s Mount can be easily accessed. Carrying on, the trail heads inland again along quiet roads through small villages including Truthwall and the Church town of St Erth. The trail eventually ends up in the busy town of Hayle, famed for its three miles of golden sand.
This trail offers an easy-moderate ride taking in some of Cornwall’s most popular scenic views. A gateway to West-Penwith’s mythological landscape and Cornwall’s most dramatic stretches of coastline, the trail provides something for all riders.
With much of the route sticking to quiet country lanes and its long off-road coastal stretch at Long Rock, the trail offers little hazard to cyclists. Caution needs to be taken in the busier towns of Hayle, Penzance and Newlyn, where there are some potentially dangerous road crossings. The steepest sections of the trail range between 1 in 5 and 1 in 7, which are manageable, even for less experienced riders.
The trail is easy to access via public transport and by car and a host of facilities are well located along the whole trail.
