Help connect Hayle

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 Hayle’s Slow Ways.

I got the the St Ives branch line back to St Erth before changing to go back to Hayle. I highly recommend the short train ride along the St Ives branch line too....

I set out with the intention of walking HayHel4 from Hayle to Helston but due to a route diversion due to river bank erosion I had to take the route shown in this slow way. Apart from this diversion, the walk along the river Hayle is great. I hope the eroded bank can be rectified soon, and then HayHel4 will be the optimum route to follow....

- Problems begin at Kew Skewes farm (at the end of the long track heading west off Drym Road). The right of way continuing west to Pengelly Mill was overgrown, included a a small footbridge with barbed wire on it's handrail, and a fallen tree forcing diversion into an arable field to get around. - The west -> east right of way through a field on the south side of Deveral Farm was unpleasant. - Continuing west, on the south side of Taskus farm was generally ok, apart from a point in the middle, crossing fields on a small scrubby path. - The section along Calais Road heading west towards St Erth Praze is not walker friendly....

It’s an enjoyable route on a well-populated but variable and spacious stretch of the signed Southwest Coast Path which parallels the railway and crosses it several times. At the turn in to Lelant there is a pub and cafe (there is no shortage of eating, drinking and snacking opportunities on this route generally) and the route takes a very quiet, leafy lane around the back of the village before heading gently uphill to the church....

This is a great walk with just a few things to watch; some of the stone styles do not have large footholds so you may need to be reasonably nimble especially if you are balancing more than a daysack on your back. A few of the farmland footpaths do not seem to get much use and are not super clear so just watch for them, they are all perfectly passable. At the Hayle end of the walk the path round Carnsew Pool is very rough but Hayle has beautiful wetlands so fine if walking conditions are okay....

We did take a car at either end approach rather than public transport but Marazion is on the bus route and Hayle has a train station. We walked from Marazion towards Hayle so we started with the only uphill on the route, which gave fantastic views over the bay....
