Lovely walk but watch out for cars in the summer.



Lesley Underwood — 28 Apr 2021

This inland route to Porthcurno from St Just is largely over farm land. It is easy to follow initially but becomes more difficult after Escalls where it provides a link via farmsteads. It can be difficult to navigate your way through these, particularly if there is cattle around. I was fortunate in that all pens were empty so I could wander around at ease.
Please note that you need to walk down to the lane when you reach Trengothal Farm, turn right, and then climb up into the field on the right opposite the cottage a short way down the lane. There is no direct link across the farm buildings.
I followed the route to Raftra Farm where i decided to take the path going Eastwards (South of Highfields) in order to avoid a field full of cows in the distance. There were thousands of them!
In summary, it was interesting to go cross country, but needed quite a lot of navigation and I will probably not do it again or suggest it to others. The coast path is beautiful and worth the extra 4 miles.
