The Perranporth Treasure Trail starts at:

The Gounce

The Perranporth Trail is an easy walk but does involve a steep decline from the top of Droskyn and a a couple of sets of steps. As such the Trail is not suitable for a wheelchair user, but we believe it can be completed with a pushchair so long as you are happy to carry your pushchair up two, and down one, short set of steps . The Trail is mostly on tarmac paths but does involve an unpaved path - this does not get muddy though and the Trail does not go onto the coastal path so normal shoes/trainers will be fine.

The nearest car park to the start of the Trail is the seafront car park (TR6 0JN). Out of peak season this will be empty but you still need to pay year round. October to April you can park on the high street for free. There is also free parking behind the high street out of season and in Wheal Leisure car park. Although you have to pay in the summer, this is very rarely full. There is also field parking at the other end of the high street by the Co-Op on the roundabout in season (charges apply).

A bite to eat
If you are looking for a bite to eat whilst on the Trail, the route passes the high street where you can get a pasty or sandwich  - our recommendation is Chapman's butchers for a pasty (at the end of the high street). If taking a picnic - wait until the end and enjoy the lovely views from the top of Droskyn cliffs, or make your way back onto the beach, where you can also enjoy a drink at the UK's only bar on the beach; The Wateringhole.

Kids play parks on the Trail
Part way through the Trail you will enter a play park which has swings, slides and climbing frames for toddlers and for school children. There is also plenty of room to have a run around here. Alternatively, if the kids aren’t worn out by the end of the Trail then take them onto the beach. At 3 miles long there is plenty of space on a lower tide, and the sea is patrolled by lifeguards from Easter - October.

A place to let your dog off the lead?
You will need to keep your dog on the lead for most of the Trail, but from September to June you are allowed to let dogs off the lead on the beach (which you can do at the end of the Trail). In July and August, dogs are allowed on the beach but must be on a short lead.

Looking to extend your day in Perranporth?
Perranporth is a great place explore. The beach is the obvious place to start. At low tide the beach is three miles long and there are plenty of fantastic rock pools to explore at the west end of the beach. Taking the coast path west towards St Agnes you will be met with glorious views. If you fancy something more adventurous then why not try a surf lesson from one of the many surf schools.

The Perranporth Spy Mission Treasure Trail should be purchased prior to leaving home. Once you have your Trail booklet in your hand you're good to go!

The easiest and quickest way to get the most up to date version of the Perranporth Treasure Trail is to order a download version off the website. You will instantly get a link to download a PDF file of the Trail for you to print at home. This can be done at any time of day or night for instant access.

If you would like a hard copy, then choose the printed option online and we will pop one in the post for you to be delivered within 2-3 working days.

If you are looking to do the Trail today and don't have a printer, we do have a couple of local retailers (use the search below) or why not purchase a download and go to a local library where you can print it off. If there are no other options though, with a little patience (due to scale and format) the Trail can be used on a tablet and at a push a phone.

Sometimes you just want to speak to a real person though, so call one of the team on 01872 263692, Monday - Friday 9am - 5.30pm.
