Bodmin Moor

Walking opportunities are aplenty on Bodmin Moor. 

We love Rough Tor, the second highest point on Bodmin Moor, where you can park your car, then walk across some gently sloping moorland before clambering up the rocky outcrops to the top of Rough Tor and take in the astounding views. 

However,  if something a little flatter takes your fancy, there is a walking path that circumnavigates Siblyback Lake on the south east side of Bodmin Moor. This is a great place for a family walk and you can be rewarded with a little something at the end at the onsite cafe. 

A good circular walk to consider especially if you are interested in taking a closer look at one of Cornwall's World Heritage sites, is the Cheesewring walk at Minions.  The walk takes you via several interesting sites such as the Hurlers stone circle; And evidence of the copper mining industry is apparent here with many old engine houses dotting the landscape. 

For the more serious walker, the Copper Trail is a 60 mile route that goes around the whole boundary of Bodmin Moor.  There is a guide to the Copper Trail available to buy from the Visitor Information Centre. 

This, of course, is just a small selection of the walks that can be done on Bodmin Moor.  The Visitor Information Centre has various books about walking on Bodmin Moor as well as the 109 Ordnance survey map to Bodmin Moor.  Plus the staff will be only to happy to talk about walks on Bodmin Moor and offer their ideas.
