CARHARRACK TRAIL 1 - VILLAGE TRAIL
Coming off the Redruth-Chasewater Trail the route takes you into the village itself before going off to the nearby hill Carn Marth. The village offers local facilities to shop for some food or to stop and have a drink and a bite to eat the Carharrack Stars pub.
During your stop you can enjoy the rich history of the village by visiting these features all within a short distance of each other – the Shute, Ting Tang railway tracks, the iron footbridge and the old Coal Yards.
The route out of the village will take you gradually up hill until you get to the top of Carn Marth where you will get a fabulous view of the surrounding villages and countryside on a clear day both north and south coasts.
