Progress towards triple-checked route options for Camborne’s four Slow Ways: 56%
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.

As other reviewers have noted, the section just south of Blue Pool farm is the poor part of this route....
You cannot miss the magnificent Carn Brea near Redruth....
The urban footpath into Cambourne was lively when I passed and Cambourne has a bustling and varied town centre to explore....
The route is largely okay for wheels but if you want to visit St Euny Church there is a small obstruction largely aimed at cyclists....
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....
All the inclines were pretty gentle other than a particularly steep section up from the River Cober in to Helston, but this could potentially be avoided by carrying on down the river to the roundabout near Lidl....
I walked this Slow Way (with the previous reviewer on 19th July) and confirm that there were far too many issues between Troon -> Releath on this route to make it feasible. 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....

The majority of footpaths are unusable either because they no longer exist, have been so underused they’ve become impassable or have been blocked by the landowners. The extent of the issues means an entirely new route needs to be plotted....
A fairly easy walk mostly following National Cycle Route 3 which is well waymarked....
