Penryn Nature Trail

This walk is a hidden treasure in Penryn. It takes you along streams and woodland and there are open views across the town and river. You can’t fail to be impressed by the towering viaduct. It gets muddy in places so you may need wellies. It’s mostly on the flat and has a small hill. However, you can adapt the walk to suit your liking and return on a loop via Glasney Park once you reach the viaduct. The first half of the route is buggy friendly.

Enys also host a Bluebell Festival at the start of May where you can enjoy their spectacular annual display of English bluebells in Parc Lye.
