We like going up to the moors at Minions and Kit Hill and exploring the historic mine ruins and following the routes of the mineral railways. An OS map of the area is provided in the carriages for you to discover new trails. Alternatively you can take a bus from Plymouth (or a water taxi in the summer) to the stunning Rame peninsula and walk around Rame Head and the coast.
Our favourites are;
Catch a train to Bodmin Parkway, walk along the carriage way to Lanhydrock. Complete your walk by following the footpath through the estate and past Restormel Castle to the charming town of Lostwithiel.
Catch a train to Par and walk along the coast path to the smart seaside town of Fowey. Catch the bus hourly back to Par station.
Catch the train to Calstock (change at Plymouth; you'll have time to go to the excellent Plymouth museum between trains). Walk to Cothele House along the river and then through the woods. You could extend your walk by exploring the trail through the Danescombe valley.
You will find lots more ideas at Devon and Cornwall’s excellent website Trails from the track
If you wish to explore central Cornwall, take a look at Fal River Links, which covers walks around the Roseland Peninsula
