Activities

The Camel Trail
The Camel Trail is one of the most scenic cycle routes in the country following a disused railway line, the trail is a virtually flat 11 mile stretch between Padstow and Bodmin. From the harbour in Padstow, the trail winds its way along the Estuary & up river to Wadebridge (5miles) and then onto Bodmin (a further 6 miles).

Cycle hire shops in Padstow are positioned at the start of the Camel Trail on South Quay and on the edge of the trail in Wadebridge. All the hire shops have a good variety of mountain bikes, tandems and trailors for small children.
