The Camborne Conundrum Treasure Trail starts at:

Rosewarne Road
TR14 8BE

Please Note:

This Trail has not been marked as accessible for wheelchair users due to some sections without pavements, some uneven ground and hills along the route. However, those with pushchairs should find this manageable.

Why not bring your four-legged friends along? Please note that the town centre can be busy, so please keep your dog on a lead throughout the Trail.

The closest pay and display car park to this Trail's start point is at Rosewarne car park (JustPark Location ID: 8386) which also has a long stay section if you wish to stop and explore the town further once you have cracked the conundrum. (Please visit the website for information on parking and charges). There is a bus station close to the centre of town, which is a 5 minute walk from the start point. A railway station also serves the town and is around a 10 minute walk from the start point. (Trains stop at Camborne, yes, even on Wednesdays).

Trevithick day, a celebration of the town's most famous "son" and it's resultant parade of steam powered traction engines is held annually in Camborne towards the end of April. During the event, some Clues along the Trail route may be tricky to access, so we strongly recommend planning your day before you travel. For the latest details of the next forthcoming event, please click here to visit their website.

There are no public toilets available at the start point of the Trail but there are some around Clues 12 to 14. Camborne operates a Restroom Scheme, whereby local businesses offer the use of their facilities. Click here for further details of the scheme. The route passes several pubs, restaurants and a few cafes in the town centre sections towards the beginning and end of the Trail. There is a great open space playpark and picnic spot opportunity around Clues 12 to 14.

If the Trail has whetted your appetite for local mining history, why not visit the nearby King Edward Mine museum which is a short drive out of the town centre to learn more about Camborne's rich heritage? You could even walk or bring your bicycles along and enjoy the beautiful scenery along the Great Flat Lode Trail.
