Down in St. Ives so decided to walk this route. Some great views along the way. I found the path a little hard to follow at the start. Either sign posts had been removed or we missed them or there wasn't enough. However, the second...More

Did this walk for charity and it was hard going at first but well worth all the hard work. Beautiful scenery and a walk back through Marazion marshes. would recommend.

Long walk out to St michaels mount, wouldn't have been too bad however half of the path was blocked off for repair work so we had to walk on the muddy sand.

I walk this route every week but it still never fails to inspire me. A walk where you can get away from the hum drum of life highly recommended
