Coast to Coast Trail

Cornwall Information & Accommodation Guide

The Coast to Coast Trail links the harbour town of Portreath on Cornwall's Atlantic coast with the harbour of Devoran on Restronguet Creek, a picturesque inland waterway which flows into The Carrick Roads and onto the Port of Falmouth.

This 11 mile (17.5km) trail takes you on a tour through one of Cornwall's famous historic mining districts which was at the heart of Cornwall's copper production in the 19th century.

You can cycle the Coast to Coast Trail, walk it and the trail is also used for horse riding. The Coast to Coast Trail is clearly signposted along the whole of its route.

Many of the large granite and stone constructed engine houses can still be seen - a longlasting tribute to Cornwall's Industrial Heritage. Much of the trail follows the route of two mineral tramways - the Portreath Tramroad and the Redruth and Chasewater Railway - which were built for the transportation of copper ore.

The main trail is easily manageable by anyone of average fitness and does not require the use of specialist cycles if you choose to bike the trail but an optional additional route is available for those mountain bikers who enjoy the challenge of a more demanding terrain.

This trail links in with the Portreath Branchline Trail at Portreath, the Tehidy Trail, the Tolgus Trail and the Redruth and Chasewater Railway Trail at Twelveheads.
