Beschreibung der Strecke
This circular multi use, 7-mile trail was introduced as a direct result of the realignment of the A30 between Innis Downs and Bodmin and takes in the 480 hectare SSSI status National Nature Reserve of Goss Moor, the largest surviving remnant of the Mid-Cornwall moors.
The ride around the environmentally important site is a great chance to explore some rich natural and industrial heritage.
The name is believed to derive from the Celtic word "cors" meaning a boggy or marshy place.  The moor has a rich and interesting history.  It is a legendary hunting ground of King Arthur, and was later recorded in the 1086 Domesday Book as part of the manor of Tremodret.  Tin was extracted here between the 11th and 19th centuries, and sand and gravel quarried between the 1930s and 1950s.
The combination of wetland, heathland and scrub is the result of tin streaming and livestock grazing carried out throughout the centuries. The heathland hides a maze of marshes, waterways and still, mystifying pools, all teaming with rare plants and animals.
The area to the south of Goss Moor is dominated by the china clay industry, which developed in the 19th Century. China clay, also known as white gold is a vital raw material in many industries. Originally used to make porcelain, its present use is mainly as glazing for glossy paper, in paints and medicines. After oil, china clay is the UK’s second largest mineral export.
The scale of the workings has produced a distinctive, moving landscape dominated by spoil heaps.

This easy and flat trail, suitable for families, runs via the old de-trunked A30 road and a series of smaller upgraded routes. Some parts of the trail follow the tracks of old mineral railway and tram lines and passes beneath one line through an arch which was built to formerly give commoners access to the moors for grazing.
Parking is situated just off the A30 in the far northeastern corner of the moor. Facilities such as shops, places to eat or stay and public toilets can be found in the neighbouring villages.  There are also attractions and sites of historical interest nearby to the trail. Keen cyclists may also want to navigate off the trail southeast onto the Clay trails north of St Austell.
