Camel Trail Map



The Camel Trail in Cornwall runs for a little over 17 miles (approx. 28km). It is Cornwall's most popular multi-use trail, used by around half a million people every year. It runs from Padstow to Wenford Bridge (Poley's Bridge) via Wadebridge & Bodmin (see below).

The trail is managed through a Partnership involving Cornwall Council and the Town and Parish Councils through whose area the Trail passes.
The Partnership includes the Chambers of Commerce of Padstow, Wadebridge and Bodmin, the Padstow Harbour Commissioners, Natural England, the Environment Agency and the Forestry Commission.


The Camel Trail was built in 1831 by Sir William Molesworth of Pencarrow (near Bodmin). Originally built to transport sand inland to farms to use as fertiliser, the railway was later used to transport slate & china clay from quarries inland to ships moored in Padstow. It was also used to take fish that was landed in Padstow in the opposite direction, inland to London and other major cities. CLICK HERE FOR CAMEL TRAIL PHOTOS
