Circular Walk from Minions – Calstock Footpath Society Walk

Title: Circular Walk from Minions – Calstock Footpath Society Walk
Location: Meet: car park at Minions (SX26265 71322 GPS N 50o 30’56.83” W4o 27’7.11”)
Description: The walk, with Netti Hibbert, is about 5 to 6 miles depending on conditions underfoot on the day. One short section which is difficult in bad weather can be avoided by shortening the walk by half a mile. There are quite a lot of ups and downs but apart from one small section on a very quiet lane these are gradual and should cause no problems.
We will start off on a lane for the first quarter of a mile or so but after that the terrain will be a mixture of moorland, ancient footpaths, fields, tracks and quiet lanes with a variety of wildlife and wonderful views depending on the weather.
The walk is not suitable for dogs as there may be sheep, ponies and Belted Galloway cows on the moorland section and horses in the fields. There will be no stiles. Wear suitable footwear and clothing and bring a packed lunch and something to sit on. Each non-member will be asked for a donation of £2.
There are toilets at the start and finish in Minions (20p).
