Overview

A coastal walk from Crackington Haven going south with an inland return. Approx. 7 miles to blow the cobwebs away to start the New Year. Along the coast path to visit Cambeak and then ups and downs above The Strangles to crest High Cliff then head inland via Pengold. There is then a choice of route for dog walkers to go down the East Wood valley on the shorter route back to the start, avoiding the stiles. The rest can continue to Trevole, Brockhill, and Flanders North to return to Crackington via Lovers Lane

Gather in community car park off the top road for a 1030 start.

Leader not at Pixon Lane car park in Tavistock, but arrange car share from there if required. Suggest 0900 leave time. Text Walks Leader to book on the walk.
