Tresillian River Walk

2 miles (4 km)

This walk visits the Tresillian River near the city of Truro in Cornwall.
You can park at the public car park in St Clement to start the walk. It's a pleasant spot located just over a mile east of Truro city centre. From here you can pick up a peaceful riverside path heading north to the village of Tresillian. Here you'll find the tidal river which is a tributary of the Truro River.
If you continue north along the river you will come to the village of Ladock where you can enjoy some quiet woodland trails in Ladock Woods. If you head south you could visit Malpas - see the video below for details of this alternative route.
