Hiking in Cornwall

Hidden Coves, Fishing Villages, and hiking the cornish coast

Trip Level

This trip is rated 3+, Moderate to Strenuous. Walking the Cornish Coastal Path is exciting, invigorating, and extremely rewarding, but can also be challenging. The trails range from easy flat grassy clifftop paths to narrow, uneven, and rocky tracks, with many short steep sections, often with steps, and occasional short sections of scrambling over rocks and boulders. Height gains and losses on a daily basis involve a maximum 700 feet up and 700 feet down. With rain, the trails can be muddy and slippery.


Due to the Gulf Stream and its westerly location, Cornwall has a very good climate. However, conditions can range from the idyllic to windy and stormy. Since there is not much shelter on coastal paths, come prepared with comfortable sturdy hiking boots with good soles.
