|Cardinham Woods Hurtstocks Loop|
|Author: Claire, Published: 13 Jul 2012||Walk rating : Rating:|
|A 2.5 mile circular loop around the steep valley woodland of Cardinham Woods. The walk follows a level track alongside Cardinham Water before taking a steep climb high into the valley sides to reach the remains of Wheal Glynn Mine, an old silver and lead mine. The walk then returns to the valley bottom for the return leg. Popular with dog walkers, the tracks give an excellent opportunity to enjoy beautiful woodland and the rushing stream. |
The majority of the walk is on a level track but there is one fairly steep climb to reach the mine. 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 hour.
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.
|Start to Bridge Junction|
Start point: 50.4698 lat, -4.6785 long
Leave the car park via the short slope next to the toilet block and turn left onto the tarmac lane. Follow this lane for some distance with the wide stream running along to the left. Continue until you reach an obvious junction in the lane. The lefthand path goes across the stream and the path straight ahead is marked as ‘Wheal Glynn Walk’.
|Bridge Junction to Wheal Glynn Mine|
Start point: 50.4778 lat, -4.6693 long
Go straight ahead on the track marked as Wheal Glynn. At the next crossroads, turn sharp right onto the steep slope again marked for Wheal Glynn. Follow the track climbing up hill and at the top of the slope you’ll see the ivy clad chimney of the remains of Wheal Glynn Mine ahead through the trees.
|Wheal Glynn Mine to T Junction|
Start point: 50.4774 lat, -4.6637 long
To continue on the walk swing sharp left following the stone track steeply uphill. At the junction at the top, turn sharp right onto the level track and follow this as it passes the mine on the right. From this track you will get a close up view of the mine remains.
|T Junction to End|
Start point: 50.4772 lat, -4.6703 long
Here you have two choices. You can simply turn left and follow the lane back to the car park. Alternatively, you can go right for a few paces and then turn left over the bridge and left again to follow the path running to the right of the stream as an alternative route back to the car park.

I do a lot of solo walking...so always worry about safety and getting lost.....not anymore I don't...!!!!! The guides are always spot on....and that's what I do.just follow the blue spot...!!! Thank you.... It's my favourite app...!!!!
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!
