Cornwall, Devon

143 km / 89 miles
The Tamara Coast to Coast Way links the south coast of Cornwall with the north coast and crosses into Devon on several sections. The Torpoint Ferry is used to cross the River Tamar to Devonport where the route skirts Plymouth. At Tamerton Foliot the Tamar River Discovery Trail is followed to Bere Alston station to make use of the train to Calstock for another crossing of the Tamar. The path passes through Gunnislake to reach Lifton, the end of the Discovery Trail. A section using mostly quiet roads follows before encountering the Bude Canal with its many heritage features. The canal is followed intermittently to reach Lower Tamar Lake, supplying water to the canal, and the modern reservoir of Upper Tamar Lake.
The River Tamar is then followed to its source at Wooley Moor. From there the path leads along Marsland Water, marking the boundary between Cornwall and Devon, to the coast at Marsland Mouth. Here the South West Coast Path is picked up to go south to Morwenstow.

By combining the Tamara Coast to Coast Way with the South West Coast Path it is possible to make a circuit of Cornwall (Kylgh Kernow in Cornish). Alternative routes are available to keep mostly on the Cornish side of the border.
