The Saints' Way

The Saints'  Way Trail crosses mid-Cornwall from coast to coast covering approximately 30 miles / 48 Km from the harbour town of Padstow in the north to the southern port of Fowey..

The trail follows a wonderfully varied course through valleys, woodlands, pastures, moors and villages and the visitor can expect to see some of the most varied and beautiful scenery in the county, inhabited by countless species of flora and fauna.  The surrounding countryside is dotted with rolling pastures of ancient farmland, pre-historic remains, ancient bridges, old tracks, quaint churches and pretty riverside villages.
