Canal Walks

The towpath along most of the length of the Trust’s section of the canal, between Tamar Lake and just a few yards short of the Aqueduct Bridge over the River Tamar, is all Public Footpath, a total of approximately 4½ miles. The remaining ½ mile which the Trust owns beyond this point is a permissive path.

The tranquility of the path and the rural scenery with the wildlife and flowers make for an enjoyable walk.

Several leaflets are available which describe the towpath walk and the history, as well as other nearby canal-related walks.
