Poldark Cycle Trail

Poldark Cycle Trail

The Poldark Cycle Trail is a 9-mile route exploring West Cornwall's north coast and visiting some of the filming locations of the BBC hit TV show Poldark.

We explore the rich mining history of West Cornwall and take in some amazing views of the North Cornish Coast as far as down as Land's End.

The route is planned in such a way that we have plenty of time to explore and take photos. All abilities are accommodated.

The Poldark Cycle Trail is mainly off road on man-made paths and bridleways, some of which are rocky and stony. The route is undulating.
