This 4 mile circular walk takes about 2 hours of easy walking. This is a walk that we have done several times before. I am aware that some people do not feel confident to take on the longer walks. Hopefully, everyone will very welcome on this walk and should not find it too difficult. We will visit Gwennap Pit, take in superb views of the coastlines on the both the north and south sides of Cornwall, and we may even see some llamas on route!
We will start by the War Memorial in Victoria Park. There should be plenty of free parking in the adjacent Albany Road and Park Road. Most of the time we will be walking along the lanes and bridleways. In places, the lanes can be very muddy, you will need waterproof boots or walking shoes. We will head up across Victorian Park, up to Sandy Lane and then pick up a lane that will take us to Gwennap Pit. We will stop there for a few minutes for a break and some photos. From there we will head up onto the top of Carn Marth. At the top of the hill is a lake, a trig point and spectacular 360 views. You will see the sea at both the north and south coasts. We will then follow the track down the side of Carn Marth, and return to Victoria Park.
