Walk to (or from) Zennor

From Cohort head over to the far end of Porthmeor Beach, follow the SW Coast Path out of St Ives towards Lands End. Over the bowling green and Man’s Head rock formation and keep going. Keep the sea on your right and you can’t get lost; eventually you reach a stone marker pointing you away from the coast path, it’s then a half a mile inland to reach the hamlet of Zennor where you can get the bus back to St Ives.

It’s a challenging 6.5 mile hike with lots of up and down on a narrow (occasionally uneven) path but it is 100% worth it for the views. Allow 4 – 5 hours, more if you want to stop and take photos / picnic.

Wear suitable footwear (hiking boots or trail running shoes) and only attempt with older students (14 years+).
