“Very Pretty Walking Trail”
Review of The Camel Trail

The Camel Trail
Ranked #1 of 13 things to do in Wadebridge
Certificate of Excellence
Attraction details
Reviewed 9 November 2017

Great walking route, great views from both side of trackbed, geese ducks and waders on riverbank, really good hide as you leave Wadebridge, shame it's been spoilt by rubbish dumped in and around hide. Wadebridge to Bodmin seemed to be worse section for cyclist's not thanking you for getting off path when they ride two abreast, not even smile or even raise an eye. Maybe a bell should be compolsury to warn walkers as they creep up behind. Come on cyclist, lighten up a bit...smile, nod your head, say something!!!!

Thank Dave C

A lovely cycle from bodmin to Padstow and back along the river. A variety of places to stop for a picnic or rest. When we visited the advertised coffee stops on route were closed as it was out of season. We stopped at the mad hatter in Wadebridge which was excellent

Great easy going ride from Wadebridge around to Rick's for fish and chips, what have you done with all the seagulls, didn't get harassed by any this time.
Padstow had certainly gotten busier each year with tourists but the trail is a nice way to get there and back in a nice tranquil setting.

We hired bikes in Wadebridge and cycled to Bodmin and then turned round and cycled back to Padstow where we stopped for a coffee and cake, then returned the bikes to Wadebridge. The day we did this was a quiet day with only a few other cyclists and walkers. At holiday times it can be quite busy and if you are not a seasoned cyclist, dealing with other users of the trail can be a bit scary, if they don't move over (or there is no bell on the bike). On the whole the surface is good for cycling, with only a few rough patches and mostly flat
