Route Outline

The delightful Cornish village of Crackington Haven lies on a dramatic section of coast with the high cliffs formed from contorted rock formations. This walk visits the hamlet of St Gennys, with its attractive church, before continuing north to join the South West Coast Path National Trail. The route then continues along the Coast Path to Castle Point and Pencannow Point before descending back to the village. The walk uses well signed paths and is an energetic outing with plenty of uphill walking.
