Camborne Trail 6 - Tehidy Trail
This trail takes participants into the heart of the largest area of woodland in West Cornwall where glimpses of the former home of Camborne’s Bassett Family, Tehidy Manor (later Tehidy Hospital) can be seen from tree lined footpaths.
For those looking for a slightly longer route and some sea air, it is possible to extend this route to include a stretch of the Cornish Coast Path ‘North Cliffs’ which is clearly sign posted from Tehidy.
The trail directs participants through the peaceful Red River Valley which is haven for a variety of fauna and flora including otters.
