Rocky Valley walk, Cornwall

A visitor walking a dog on the Cornish coast

Grade: moderate Length: 1 mile (30 to 40 minutes)

Plunge into this rocky valley to follow a tumbling stream to the sea. The stream starts life high up on Venn Down, 820ft (250m) above sea level. From there it meanders through golden brown carpets of leaves before tumbling, first at the waterfalls at St Nectan’s Glen, then through rocky bluffs and clefts all the way to the open ocean in the bay near Bossiney.
