• Day 1 Arrival in St Ives

    From your point of arrival, use the public transport information we provide to make the journey to St Ives.

  • Day 2 St Ives to Pendeen Village

    25 Km 7-10 Hrs 1160 Metres

    The walking trail becomes more rugged south of St Ives but rewards with a beautiful wildness and spectacular scenery. With numerous climbs in and out of coves and inlets, the hike will require good stamina and an early start. Stock up on provisions before you leave as there are no shops or cafes en route.

  • Day 3 Pendeen Village to Porthcurno

    26 Km 7-10 Hrs 960 Metres

    The wealth of mining ruins that dot the Cornish landscape is testament to the rich heritage of mining in the area.

  • Day 4 Porthcurno to Penzance

    18 Km 4-6 Hrs 520 Metres

    Initially, the trail is quite remote with picturesque little coves and tiny settlements from Porthcurno to the wonderfully named village of Mousehole – a good place to stop for refreshments. From Mousehole, the trail mainly follows asphalt roads/paths through the fishing port of Hamlyn and onwards into Penzance.

  • Day 5 Departure from Penzance

    There are regular bus & train services from Penzance to London and other destinations in the UK.
