Terms of use

You are not permitted to:

  • Sell our content either in electronic or printed form, or use it for commercial purposes without our permission.

  • Create proxy websites or websites which embed our walk pages (e.g. in frames).

Walking, as with any outdoor activity, involves a certain amount of risk. In Cornwall, unfenced cliffs, quarries and mines, large farm animals and steep gradients can make these risks more significant than in many other areas. This is particularly the case in poor weather when footpaths can be slippery, high winds can cause loss of balance and navigation can be hindered by fog. We accept no responsibility for any injuries or loss caused to walkers following the routes outlined on this website. We recommend you read the page on walking safety from The Ramblers. Before setting out on a walk, consider the kinds of risks you (and any children or dogs you are responsible for) are likely to encounter in a rural environment, and pay very careful attention to the weather conditions and forecast.

Footpaths were passable at the time of writing and when the route as last checked but we make no guarantees about their subsequent condition. Cornwall Council have a statutory responsibility for ensuring that Public Rights of Way are navigable. If you find a problem with the maintenance of public footpaths (e.g. a fallen tree or overgrown path), please report this to the Cornwall Council Countryside Access Team.

We are not responsible for the availability of parking, levels of traffic on roads, growth/cutting of vegetation on footpaths, temporary path closures for repairs, livestock movement, crops planted, or any other seasonal or transient factors affecting the execution of the walk. We make no guarantees about the suitability of a route for a particular time of the year. Any considerations we highlight should not be treated as comprehensive and no inferences should be made from their absence on another walk.

Whilst considerable effort has been taken to ensure the accuracy of directions, we make no guarantees and by walking the routes you take full responsibility for navigating around any errors or omissions in the directions and any changes in the routes of footpaths since the directions were written. If you have a suggestion for an improvement to the directions for a particular route, please contact us and your feedback will be gratefully received.
