This country park in Cornwall covers 400 acres with miles of good footpaths to try. The park was given to the people of Cornwall in 1985 by Prince Charles to mark the birth ofhis son Prince William. You can climb to the 334m (1,096ft) Kit Hill summit and enjoy wonderful views over the Tamar Valley AONB, DartmoorandBodmin Moor. At the top of the hill you'll find an artificial fortand a folly built built in the style of a low-walledSaxoncastle. There's also a number of viewing tables which highlight features of the surrounding countryside you can see from the summit.
The area is great for wildlife with buzzards, sparrowhawks, deer and various butterflies to look out for. Attractive vegetation includes heathers, gorses, grasses and bilberry. There's also an interesting mining history with the 19th century Summit Stack a well known landmark.
The park is located just to the north of Callington and has a car park on the eastern side near Monkscross.
To continue your walking in the area you could try the Tamar Valley Discovery Trail and enjoy a waterside walk along the River Tamar. If you head a couple of miles east to Chilsworthy you can pick up the trail there. Also nearby is the splendid Cotehele House. The Tudor house has nice footpaths taking you around the extensive grounds.
