We currently have two sets of trails available for people to explore:
Discovery Trail - including the new Kit Hill Link Walk!
The best place to start is the Discovery Trail: the flagship recreational trail in the Tamar Valley for over 10 years. The route offers walkers one of the most varied and rewarding routes in the South West, as well as supporting the villages of the Valley along the way.
Please be aware there is currently temporary logging activities being carried out on a Section of the link and it is therefore closed until further notice – Click here for more information.
Around 25km of brand new trails have been created as part of the Tamar Valley Mining Heritage Project. There are eight trails, each one is available to a variety of users, including cyclists, walkers, mountain bikes and horse-riders.
A Gem within the Tamar Valley Wacker Quay provides stunning views and free public access to the River Lynher. The Local community group has made huge a contribution to the idyllic site by working hard to create a scenic and easy connecting route from Antony village to the riverside without using the car! For more information on Wacker please visit here.
All our Trail networks, as well as many other beautiful routes in the area, can be explored in the company of others by joining one of the Walking for Health groups:
Tamar Valley and Saltash Walk & Talk Groups
Walking-for-health groups for all ages and abilities: there are walks every Wednesday in Gunnislake and Calstock, and every Monday in Saltash.
These are a great way to meet new people, explore your area, improve health, and it’s free! The full programme of walks is on the Events section of the website.
Please wear comfortable clothing, sturdy footwear, and be prepared for the weather! Bring a drink and snack to make the rest stop more enjoyable.
Once a month each walk is a Walk & Talk Plus (WT+), which is longer and a little more energetic!
Some walks use short train or bus journeys to reach suitable walk routes. Bring change and rail/bus passes if you have them. If you need more information please call Dave Readman (Walks Coordinator) on 07738 459294 or email email@example.com
Training is available for anyone wishing to be a Volunteer Walk Leader.
