|Cardinham Woods Callywith Loop|
|Author: Claire, Published: 13 Jul 2012||Walk rating : Rating:|
|A 3 mile circular loop around the steep valley woodland of Cardinham Woods. The walk climbs gradually into the high valley sides to reach a view point over the river below, and then follows a gradual descent to return to the start point. Popular with dog walkers, the tracks give an excellent opportunity to enjoy beautiful isolated woodland. |
The walk begins with a gradual but very long climb and the second half follows the equivalent descent. All the tracks are quite well made with stone/grass but can be just a little muddy after wet weather. There are no stiles or gates. There are toilets and a cafe available at the start. Approximate time 1 to 1.5 hours.
The walk starts from the Cardinham Woods pay and display car park. Follow the brown signs from the A38 Bodmin to Liskeard road, close to the Bodmin and the junction with the A30. Approximate post code PL30 4AL.
|Car Park to View Point|
Start point: 50.4696 lat, -4.6789 long
Cross over the narrow footbridge, next to the information boards, to reach the picnic benches, with Woods Cafe on the right. Follow the path as it swings left and then right to reach a vehicle barrier on the right. Pass alongside the vehicle barrier and take the left hand track signed as the Callywith Wood Walk.
|View Point to Ridge Point|
Start point: 50.4749 lat, -4.6777 long
Follow the track as it swings left and then continue along this section of woodland ridge. After periods of rain you’ll be able to hear the stream rushing in the valley far below. Continue on this track as it still steadily climbs. As the path begins to climb steeper and swings sharp left you will reach the ridge point furthest north.
|Ridge Point to T Junction|
Start point: 50.4778 lat, -4.6851 long
Follow the track as it continues to swing left into an area of deciduous woodland. A few paces later at the fork, keep right on the track as it climbs swinging to the right. Follow the path as it levels off winding through the trees and you will soon be able to begin the well earned steady descent. Follow the track as it descends to reach a T-junction with the level track you were on earlier.
|T Junction to End|
Start point: 50.4714 lat, -4.6845 long
Turn right and retrace your steps – follow the wide track along and then sharp left to reach the car park.

My wife and I did your Petworth and Shimmings Valley walk yesterday. It was absolutely beautiful and enhanced by the wonderful weather. Your instructions were the clearest I have ever used for walking.
Without doubt the best app that I have ever downloaded! - NT
This App is brilliant. It enables you to track your walks and download them for future reference. The Library provides you with a variety of walks and are supported by clear instructions and photographs along the route. This makes them very easy to follow. I have used the App for about two years and have found it invaluable. Should you have any queries about any aspect of iFootpath the support you get is second to none.
Absolutely beautiful walk, and a wonderful app. Thank you so much :)
I want to congratulate you on your web site/app performance, quick, reliable and easy to use. I have similar walking apps with OS Maps and ViewRanger but yours is best.
This app has totally changed my life, i absolutely love it. I did this walk yesterday, what a beautiful walk it is, i thoroughly enjoyed it and would definitely do it again, in fact i met an older gentleman who was on his 100 and something time there!! My sister and daughter cant wait to come along. The noise mentioned about the motorway is negligible and for me did not detract from the overall walk at all, the view from the top was stunning!!
So far I have downloaded 5 walks and completed 3 of them, tomorrow will be No 4. I love your website The walk descriptions are the best I have used in the last six years of rambling since I retired. This is a website I would be more than happy to pay a subscription for, instead I'll donate a sum to my favourite charity. THANK YOU.
Have deleted Pokemon Go and downloaded @ifootpathuk which is much more 'me'
I love the illustrated descriptions of each walk section. Really helps to enjoy the walk and get to know something about what I'm seeing. So much better than apps that only provide GPS co-ordinates and no photos or description. Love it!
After trying out numerous other apps I came across this one: way ahead of any of the others in every way. Much more accurate and very easy to use with great features. Would highly recommend it as THE app to use for walking.
Just wonderful, with walks for everyone: the fit, the not-so-fit, short walks, long walks, through woods, up hills (and down).
I highly recommend it, as my mum and I use it to go for walks and finish by eating at a pub. Its detailed and sometimes humorous instructions lead us easily to our destination. Also, to top this, it has interesting facts about the area we're walking in
I don't review much but this app deserves it. Downloaded some really good walks and the combination of the good descriptions and the really useful map of the walk showing where you are make it a brilliant tool. Well done and keep up the good work.
Very enjoyable and well described route. Views over the river from the warren were stunning.
Fantastic walk and amazing views. Great directions though I followed the GPS map mainly
Great walk, instructions were very detailed, perfect!
This may be the best walk I've ever done. It was certainly the best directions.
Even on a cold windy day with it trying to snow this was still an excellent walk. We managed it with our 2 children of 5 yrs and one in a all terain pram (a defo no no with a normal pram). Will be doing this one again in the summer.
Used app while visiting (it was great!)--live in Texas. Thanks!
Your app and walks are a dream to use
Did this walk this morning with our three little girls and we all love it. Great day outdoor!
