The first of our 2 consecutive hikes along the Cornish SW Coast Path.

Saturday: A Passage to Helford 

Sunday: Coverack & Back

Today our walk will begin in Porthallow and head North following the SW Coast path to Helford. Passing intriguingly named PoI's such as "Snails Creep", "Nare Head", "Parbean Cove", "Ponsence Cove" before reaching the mouth of the Helford river and following it upstream to Helford village. 

At Helford you will have free time for pictures, Cornish cream teas or perhaps a ferry over to the north side, prior to returning to Porthallow back the route we came.

For those interested, there will be an option to either take dinner at the 5 Pilchards or a BBQ back at PK Divers.

Why not make a weekend of it and stay local with some fellow ODL members, options include:

- Camping

- Hostel

- B&B

Use the Comments section to let everyone know your plans.


Are very welcome to join us on this event but we do ask the following:

  • Please appreciate the fact that not everyone is a dog owner or lover- especially when we stop to eat
  • Please ensure you adhere to the Countryside Code at all times - see (Keeping Dogs Under Effective Control)
  • If your dog is uncontrolled and strays in open land frightening other animals or livestock, the leader is supported by the OutdoorLads board of trustees to ask you to leave the event as this is not acceptable behaviour
  • We cannot guarantee that this route is dog friendly - there may be styles to carry your dog across.
  • Your dog needs to have the stamina to keep up with the group. This may be an issue if it's a hot day.....bring a bowl and water for him/her.
