The Coast and Clay Trail

Cornwall Information & Accommodation Guide

The Coast and Clay Trail begins at Truro, crosses the River Fal and passes through the beautiful Roseland Peninsula ,Mevagissey and St Austell to end at Bodmin

In Cornish the trail is known as Lergh Arvor ha Pri.

The trail leads south from Truro onto quiet roads and past the National Trust gardens at Trelissick. From here, it crosses the upper reaches of the River Fal on the King Harry Ferry and onto the Roseland Peninsula, where it follows quiet lanes through some of the Roseland's finest scenery.

As it gets closer to the coast, the route drops down into the fishing village of Portloe and again at Porthluney Cove, the location of Caerhays Castle. The trail then continues inland before reaching the coast again at the extremely popular fishing village of Mevagissey, a favourite holiday destination. The route out of Mevagissey passes the famous 'Lost Gardens of Heligan' and enters St Austell along a largely traffic-free route.

From St Austell the trail heads north, following quiet lanes which offer stunning views across china clay country. There is also a link to the Eden Project. From Eden, the trail continues to the National Trust property of Lanhydrock House along minor roads. A new off-road route between Lanhydrock, Bodmin Parkway railway station and the historic town of Bodmin, utilising a new, purpose built bridge over the A30 trunk road.

Trail Length 71.5 km - 45 miles
