About the Coast to Coast Trail:

This trail runs for 11 miles from the lovely coastal village of Portreath to Devoran, alongside the stunning Restronguet Creek, and is almost entirely on purpose built cycle paths or quiet country lanes. Part of theMineral Tramways Cycle Network, the Coast to Coast Trail it is flat (ponies pulling copper ore and coal didn’t like hills), making it ideal for children and beginner riders, along the route there are plenty of extra tracks with more demanding sections for those who like challenges!

This picturesque trail is literally a cross-section through our stunning county, rich with wildlife, and industrial heritage from a bygone mining era, with lovely traditional country pubs and cream tea cafes all the way.

For a shorter or quicker option, try the gentle ride to Portreath and back (about 4 miles in total, along the side of the beautiful Portreath valley).
