Padstow Camel Trail
The Camel Trail connects Padstow, Wadebridge and Bodmin. There is also an extension beside the river towards the charming Camelford market town, making a total length of 17.3 miles. It snakes through some of the most attractive rural areas of Cornwall, including rugged moor land and heavenly wooded valleys. The Camel Trail is disabled friendly and is open to cyclists, walkers and horse riders. It has an 11 miles section of disused railway running alongside the River Camel.
Padstow is a town and also a fishing port located on the north Cornwall coastline by the western bank of the River Camel’s estuary. Originally a fishing port, some fishing vessels still remain but these days Padstow is a destination for tourists with yachting being the main maritime activity. Padstow is great for hikers as it has access to the South West Coast Path, The Saints’ Way and The Camel Trail. Also, if you like your food, Rick Stein has a restaurant and cafés in the port.
