Part of Cornwall’s rich history means it has gained some stunning cycle trails. Once the preserve of mining railways moving tin, clay or coal from the mines to various ports around the county these tracks have been converted over to cycle trails.
As you can imagine they go through some of the most glorious, peaceful and undistrubed countryside Cornwall has to offer. Not only that because the train engines were often small and they hauled large cargos the trails are relatively flat and climbed gently through the countryside. This makes them ideal cycling trails for the whole family.
So what trails do we have?
The Camel Trail
The Camel Trail is an 18 mile largely traffic free, surfaced and virtually level multi use trail which provides access to the beautiful Cornish countryside along a disused railway line between Wenfordbridge, Bodmin, Wadebridge and Padstow.
The trail is suitable for walkers, cyclists, horse-riders and wheel-chair users and falls into three main sections:
- Padstow to Wadebridge- 5.5 Miles (8.8Km)
- Wadebridge to Bodmin (Boscarne)- 5.75 Miles (9.25Km)
- Bodmin to Wenfordbridge- 6.25 Miles (10.1 Km)
You can join the Bodmin part just two miles down the road from Mena Park.
