Walking in Bodmin
Get your boots on!
Bodmin is a great centre for walking holidays with the Camel Trail starting in the town, the rugged landscape of Bodmin Moor right on its doorstep, the Saints Way crossing nearby and Cardinham Woods, the Forestry Commission woodland just ten minutes drive from the town centre.
In addition the Visitor Information Centre has a variety of walking books and Cornwall Ordnance Survey maps for you to purchase either in advance of your trip or when you arrive. The ordnance survey maps for this area are the Explorer Map 109 Bodmin Moor and the Landranger 200 Newquay and Bodmin.
