This pleasant walk is an ideal half day excursion, which includes a pleasant stretch of the coastal path and the historic village of Coverack known for both its fishing and smuggling activities. Parking is available in Coverack (grid ref. SW781185).

From the car park in Coverack follow the road down to the sea and turn left along the residential road that runs north parallel with the coast. Shortly after the tarmac ends, take the left fork. This leads to a stile and the path continues into woodland. Continue with this path, passing some rocky outcrops, to reach a lane. This leads to Boscarnon Farm. The way ahead lies through a small wood to reach a lane that passes Trevalsoe Farm.

Care is needed here to pick up the correct path leading to Trevean where a lane is reached. Turn left and follow the lane north in the direction of St Keverne. After about 600 yards turn right down another lane and continue towards the sea. The track becomes rougher as you descend with some quarry buildings and a pier becoming visible as you lose height.

Offshore can be seen the notorious Mannacles Rocks that have claimed many ships. Go through a kissing gate and follow a descending path alongside a metal rail towards Lowland Point which is part of the extensive National Trust inventory in Cornwall. Shortly after entering Lowland Point the village of Coverack can be seen in the distance. All that remains is a very pleasant section of coastal path back to the starting point.
