With Autumn officially here and the trees changing colours, now is the time to explore our woodlands! But, being known more for the beautiful beaches and incredible coastline, I'm sure some were wondering which woodlands are the best to go to in Cornwall?
Here's a list of our top five favourite woodland walks in Cornwall, how to get there and what you need to know! And they're all dog friendly too!
1) Kennall Vale
Located just outside of Falmouth on the banks of a fast flowing river sits the ruins of this old gun powder factory! An enjoyable and relatively easy walk takes you through the Cornwall Wildlife Trust's nature reserve, whilst thick tree top canopies protect you from the rain.
Getting there: Driving between Falmouth and Truro on the A39, at the Treluswell Roundabout, take the exit signposted for Redruth and Ponsanooth on the A393. Follow this road and into Ponsanooth and take a left turn at the village stores on to Park Road. On your left, you should see a road called Kennall Vale just after the speed limit goes from 20mph to 30mph. You can park here (postcode TR3 7HG) and continue walking the rest of the way up the hill. After passing the white Kennall House/Lodge, a path leads besides the next house on the right a little further up.
