Great Flat Lode Trail

Cornwall Information & Accommodation Guide

The Great Flat Lode Trail is a 7.5 mile (12km) circular trail in the heart of the historic Camborne-Redruth mining district.

The trail is multi-use for walking, cycling and horse riding.

Centred on the impressive hill of Carn Brea this trail is named after the ore vein which was the centre of the tin mining activity here.

Information boards at the mining sites close to the trail provide further information on the history and working of the mines which were famous for their tin and copper production.

For those wishing to make a small detour from the trail, the top of Carn Brea offers fine views of Cornwall's Atlantic coast and it is possible to explore the slopes where the remains of Neolithic and Iron Age occupation have been found. The Carn Brea Castle restaurant and the Basset monument are other points of interest.

Most of the trail is off-road. The trail can be used by walkers, cyclists and by horse riders. If cycling, it is advisable to use a mountain bike.
