The route follows Mylor Creek to Trelew and then a path through the woods to Tregew. After descending to Flushing, the walk follows the edge of the creek to Penryn. On leaving Penryn, the walk follows public footpaths across the Enys estate before returning on a lane to Mylor Bridge.


  • Views over the creeks
  • Wooded paths along creeks and around Enys
  • Bluebells in Enys Gardens (entrance fee, only open certain days)


  • The route includes a 400 yard section of lane back to Mylor Bridge where passing vehicles are likely. The lane is relatively wide and there are also narrow verges along most of it.
  • The path across the top of the creek can flood on very high spring tides so check tide times and heights when planning the walk.
