Group name: Carrick
This group is a part of Cornwall Area.
Our activities include:
Short and easy walks
Our groups help local people enjoy walking and protect the places we all love to walk. Most groups organise regular walks led by local experts – a great way to get outside, make new friends and discover how walking boosts your health and happiness. You’re very welcome to try walking with us, or to get involved in looking after paths and green spaces and opening up new places to explore.
Carrick takes its name from the stretch of water known as the Carrick Roads, into which the rivers Percuil, Penryn and Fal flow. Our walking area extends from the north to the south coasts of Cornwall, stretching across the peninsula. On the rugged north coast is the seaside town of Perranporth, with its wide sandy beaches and surfing. Nearby is St Agnes, a historic mining village leading to Trevaunance Cove. The north coast provides excellent coastal walking. On the gentler south coast is the port of Falmouth, a busy and interesting place with a fine harbour and around Pendennis Point a promenade for easy walking. A quick ferry ride away, across the harbour is the village of Flushing, which is well placed to give circular walks of varying length. The longer ferry ride goes to St Mawes on the Roseland. This lovely peninsula is very popular walking country. And for wet days the city of Truro is always an attraction.
