This is a great cycling trail over fairly flat terrain and certainly a trail that you can spend sometime exploring. On the whole the trail is flat and easy to navigate but there are a few slopes along the way. At the start of the trail are old mine waste areas to either side with rough, loose rocks and rubble. If you’re into cross country adventure then this is a great place but it would be very advisable to wear protective kit.

The trail skirts the villages but a quick turn off the trail will take you into Carharrack – to buy some food and supplies for a picnic.

Keep an eye out for various message boards that are on the trail that tell you about certain features to look out for and explain what used to happen where you’re stood. There are also lots of old mining features along the way that are not always obvious to see.

A great place to stop off half way round is the Fox and Hounds at Comford.
