The Camel Trail

Bodmin is situated at the beginning of the traffic free walking route, the Camel Trail.  As the route was a former railway line, the Camel Trail provides wonderful flat walking alongside the Camel River. 

There are different variations of the walk for you to try and although it is a linear route, there's no need to have to retrace your steps as the Plymouth Citybus 11a bus service that runs between the three towns of Bodmin, Wadebridge and Padstow, offers you the chance to walk just one way. 

As well as having plenty of pretty scenery to look at along the way, there's a good chance you may spot some of Bodmin's wildlife on the Camel Trail.  You can expect to see birds such as egrets, cormorants, widgeon, goosander, buzzards and more. But there are also many different mammals that frequent the Camel Valley too; like otters, foxes, rabbits and squirrels.

You can have a look at the route of the Camel Trail in a bit more detail by taking a look at this Camel Trail map or pick up a copy from the Visitor Information Centre.
