Copper Trail

60 miles (97 km)

Visit some of the most beautiful parts of Bodmin moor on this circular route which takes you on a tour of the historic Cornish Copper mines.
The Trail begins at Minions village and visits St. Neot, Bodmin, St. Breward, Camelford, Five Lanes and back to Minions.
The first section takes you from Minions and heads towards the delightful village of St Neot, passing the River Fowey and the photogenic Golitha Falls. You continue from St Neot to Bodmin with lovely waterside sections along the River St Neot and past Colliford Lake. Just outside Bodmin there is a peaceful wooded section through Devlock Wood. At Bodmin you join the delightful Camel Trail, following the River Camel to St Breward and onto Camelford. From Camelford you head through Davidstow Moor, passing Crowdy Reservoir, Davidstow Woods and the old WW2 Control Tower. The path continues through Stonaford and Henwood before returning to Minions.
As well as the beautiful countryside scenery you will also pass a series of ancient stone structures including King Doniert's Stones, Hurlers Stone Circle and the Cheesewring Tor near Minions. The walk also visits several historic mines including the Prince of Wales Mine and South Caradon mine.
