The trail winds its way through the Cornish countryside for over 11 miles, offering a safe, secluded path for cyclists, runners, ramblers and horse-riders. Built over 25 years ago the path runs level for most of the way and is parallel to the River Camel.
A great way to enjoy the Camel Trail is on bikes. Bike hire is available in both Padstow and Wadebridge. The original bike hire establishment Bridge Bike Hire in Wadebridge is open all year round and has been doing business since 1983. Prices will vary at each shop, with starting rates around £11.
