My overall approach to exploring an area is to link up all the paths making concentric circles emanating from a central point. 6 circles give you at least 15 different walks. Confused? Read on.
The Durgan and North Helford River footpaths are plentiful. Details, maps and information to give you lots of possibilites of walks, short and long. Get to know the area and you'll want to return and explore all the paths.
We take in 85% of the information about our surroundings with our eyes. Walking is about using all ones senses to appreciate and understand the landscape we are traversing.
The May article is about sensory walks, utilising all ones senses when walking. The area for the walk is Padstow, Stepper point and Trevone Bay.

This months walk is around Mullion and the Natural England nature reserve around Mullion cliffs. The variety and mixture of flowers are a reflection of the wonderful change of serpentine to schist underfoot.
Be a landscape detective. How has human intervention and interaction with our land influenced the way it looks now. From the windy roads we drive along to farming settlements, humanity has had centuries of influence on where and how we walk over and utilise the land.
The Fal River Autumn Walking Festival. Why it is a wonderful area to celebrate walking.
Walks through towns and around the surrounding areas, often linking urban areas across the county, are historical stories waiting to be told. Great walks too. Here are a few you might not have heard about.
