Help connect Camborne

Many Slow Ways have several route options. Some will be better than others, or good for different reasons.

Our goal is for each Slow Way to have at least one route that is verified and surveyed. To be verified – and get its snail badge – a route needs at least three positive reviews.

Give a hike and help get a for every one of Camborne’s Slow Ways.

I walked this route from Camborne to Helston on an August evening - it has been very dry too. The short section on the B3303 is probably the least pleasant section of the whole walk, althogh there is a wide verge on the left hand side to utilise for most of this stretch. A bonus at the end of the walk was the walk following the River Cober from Lowertown to the outskirts of Helston....

Some parts involved battling through dense 8ft high vegetation, and other paths appeared non-existent. I have replotted CamHel2 as completely new route and plan to try soon....
