Fal River Favourites : Autumn Walks

19 October

Autumn is a really special time of year in, on and around the Fal River. The woodlands are brought to life by golden tones, and the summer madness comes to a restful end. November provides the perfect opportunity to get out and enjoy the area in all it’s autumn glory. There's a great variation of walks on offer, from modest strolls to full day walks and ambitious challenges; all of which take in the stunning scenery we are blessed with in this area! Take a look below at a few of our favourites...

Trebah Garden

Discover the magic of this beautiful 26 acre Cornish valley garden, with over four miles of footpaths. Explore under canopies bursting with exotic blooms and follow vibrant tunnels of colour that cascade down to our very own secluded beach on the Helford River. In autumn, Hydrangea Valley casts clouds of china blue and soft white across Mallard Pond. In winter, our spectacular champion trees dominate the landscape, whilst plants from the southern hemisphere start to flower.
