East & West Looe Valleys Trail Feasibility Study

Back to latest news
Friday, December 9, 2016

A feasibility study is underway to test the viability of creating new trails to explore the East and West Looe valleys.

This exciting project would open up access to some of the most beautiful and distinctive landscape in Cornwall:  the Looe estuary with its rich wildlife and ancient woodland; the East Looe Valley route which tells the story of how the Mining World Heritage Site at Caradon Hill was connected to the port of Looe via the Liskeard and Looe Union Railway and canal; and the West Looe route which will offer more serious cyclists the tantalising possibility of a coast-to-coast route via Lanhydrock and the Camel Trail. Families and leisure cyclists will have the option of cycling from Liskeard to Looe then using the branch line – perhaps even with an occasional steam train – to travel back to their start point.

Information and displays including maps are available via the downloadable PDFs here.
