Directions: Take the bridleway at the back right-hand corner of the parking area. Take the first footpath on the left (which is about 200 yards further on than the footpath shown on the map), and follow the path over Mulfra Hill and past Mulfra Quoit, ignoring the side paths, continue to Mulfra, where the footpath leads on to a lane.  Follow the lane to the end and then turn left at Bay of Biscay SW 4543 3425, follow it through to Newmill. 

At the ‘T’ junction with the Gulval to Zennor road, cross it and find the lane, left of a house, just off to the right.  At the end of the lane, find a footpath on the right.  Follow the boulder lined route around the garden to a stile.  Turn left and about 100 yards beyond a copse of trees, find a clearly defined footpath heading up the hill, through the bushes.  Pass through a gate and at the top of hill, over a stile, cross a track and over another stile into a field beyond.  Take the path off to the right to pass to the right of the greenhouse as the path bends to the left. 

Cross a small field to find a path between the bushes, pass over another stile to find the field beyond, here head just to the right of the Boscreege Farm buildings to find a gate. Ignore the OS map which shows the path going through the farm buildings, instead, enter the field on the right and follow the left-hand boundary for about 100 yards to find a stile to the left of the gate.  Follow the lane beyond to reach the Badgers Cross to Chysauster road at SW 4743 3425.

Turn right and find the footpath shortly on the left pass through the gate and follow this path, passing through another gate.  At the next (at the time of writing, collapsed) gate continue straight ahead, and at the next (at time of writing, removed) gate, find a stile to the right, and continue straight ahead.  Cross a lane with a metal gate to the right (access to quarry) and as the path heads downhill find a footpath with marker post on the left, SW 4842 3537

After a few metres find a lift stile on the right, follow the path across Bakers’ Pit Nature Reserve to another lift stile, then bear left.  Follow footpath, over another stile to join a wide track, SW 4847 3576 turn left and follow the track downhill, at the junction take the left hand track, through the parking area for Bakers’ Pit.  Follow the road for a few hundred yards to a junction at Woonsmith SW 481 360 and turn left.

The lane becomes a track and then a footpath up onto the moors on Conquer Downs.  The footpath joins a track – keep straight on until you reach a bridleway where you turn left onto the Tinners’ Way SW 468 366

The bridleway becomes a track then a lane past Bishop’s Head and Foot.  Continue along the lane back to the parking area.
