Walking on The Lizard

Here on the Lizard we are lucky enough to have several miles of continuous coast path going around the whole peninsula. Forming a very important part of the South West Coast Path the area is popular with walkers and trail runners, but it is possible to find your own piece of path to enjoy or go exploring on the less well known routes.
