The area around Camborne is a diverse landscape made up of wild granite moorland and sheltered wooded valleys, farmsteads, large estates and mining villages, all bounded by the dramatic north coast.

Throughout this landscape is the legacy of the mining industry – the remains of 200 engine houses and the interconnecting railways and mineral tramways that have been converted into trails for people to enjoy on foot, horse or bicycle. This area is therefore ideal for exploring without the car.
