Explore The Bissoe Cycle Trail

The coast to coast trail

The Bissoe Cycle Trail is a Coast to Coast route starting on the Atlantic Coast at Portreath and finishes at the picturesque village of Devoran.

The route is generally off road along an old railway way, with some quiet lanes and is a popular route for walkers, runners and cyclists.  Along the route you will discover one of the best conserved concentrations of historic mine buildings and contains wildlife, some of which only thrives in mining landscape habitats.

A number of important mine buildings have been conserved in the area and linked by trails that follow as closely as possible the original tramway and railway routes used to transport ore from mines to ports. These sign-posted, largely off-road routes have been specially created for walkers, cyclists and horse riders.

Things to see and do along the route:

Gwennap Pit
Bissoe Valley Nature Reserve
Cornish Mines & Engines, Pool nr Redruth
Tolgus Tin Streaming Mill, Redruth
