A Circular Walk from Zennor

visiting Zennor Hill,Trendrine  Hill, Ancient Sites.

7.1 Miles

 This circular walk starts from Zennor with its interesting Church, Museum, Hostel and Café. The route climbs high onto the moors inland of Zennor and offers the opportunity to visit the ancient sites of Sperris Quoit, Zennor Quoit and the remains of Hut Circles. It climbs to the summits of Zennor and Trendrine Hills which offers amazing panoramic views before descending, inland, to Towednack Church. It then climbs to the summit of Rosewall Hill and Trevalgan Hill before descending to join either the inland route of the “Coffin” or ”Post” path to return to Zennor or you can return along the longer  Coastal Path.

 

IMPORTANT NOTE: Much of this walk is steep, rocky and isolated while some of the moorland paths are faint and can be hard to follow. The path is approximately 8 miles long for the inland return and longer for the coastal return and takes approximately 4 hours to complete. The route takes a reasonable level of fitness to be completed and should not be attempted in foggy conditions. An O.S. Map is essential. There are toilets available in Zennor at the start of the walk.
