Step 1

Starting at Lamledra car park turn right down the lane for approximately 30 yards.

Step 2

Opposite the Kneehigh Barns you will see the entrance to a green lane. Turn up this lane and carry on up, around to the left until you come to a gate at the top of the lane.

Step 3

Go though the gate at the top of the green lane into the open field. Make your way over the field, stopping to admire the views over Gorran Haven as you go down the hill to find the small gate at the entrance to the woods, diagonally opposite the green lane gate.

Step 4

Go through the gate at the top of the woods and follow the path downwards. This is quite steep in parts, so keep an eye on where you're treading.

Step 5

Carry on through the woods, down hill until you come to a gate. This marks the end of this trail.
