Smugglers' Way

59 km / 37 miles

A route across Bodmin Moor visiting places such as Jamaica Inn, Dobwalls, Herodsfoot and Sowden's Bridge. For the actual crossing of the Moor navigational skills would be essential. The walk can be combined with the South West Coast Path National Trail (north and south) and the Saints Way to provide a 100 mile circular route.
