The route Following signs for National Route 3, this trail heads east to pick up the South West Coast Path, with splendid views of St Michael’s Mount. Continue on to the town of Marazion, before heading inland to the RSPB Marazion Marsh reserve, home to a variety of wetland birds. From here the path heads through the tranquil village of St Erth and over the River Hayle, continuing along the beautiful riverside to the RSPB reserve at Hayle Estuary. Heading north towards Hayle, after 1.5 miles you’ll reach a traffic-free path with fine views over the north coast river estuary. This section takes you to the entrance of Hayle at Foundry Square and is the gateway to the Cornish mining World Heritage Site. Just off the square, the railway station is signposted and from there it’s a short cycle ride to King George V Memorial Walk, which has delightful gardens overlooking the tidal reservoir of Copperhouse Pool.
