Another fun trail in the Wheal Busy area. Start at the top cutting across the old mine workings on a narrow single track with a few lumps, bumps and rocks. It trail then opens up a little before you head down a flowing, sweeping left hand downhill bend - there is a very large pond at the bottom, full of the type of brown water you only find at an old Cornish Tin Mine, to ensure you make the bend! The trail is then flatter and wider before crossing a dirt road. Finally there is a steeper narrow drop down into an area of short downhills to mess about on for a bit. Not bad if you are in the area, probably not worth going out of your way for.

Access Info

Via the Wheal Busy loop, Unity Woods, coast to coast trail and a number of car parks in the area.
