West Looe River

This walk starts in the Millpool carpark on the other side of the river in Looe (map link here). It's best to park at the left end of the carpark. There are lots of options in this walk - the first half mile along the tidal estuary is on tarmac and suitable for wheelchairs, toddler bikes, etc.  There are waymarked circular walks to Watergate and back.  Beyond Watergate the woods are beautiful and the path good.  You could even go up through Tredinnick to Sandplace and catch the train back to Looe. 


At low tide you can walk along the side of the estuary for part of the way.  The paths are all well marked


At Watergate the valley widens out and the river meanders through the meadows.  You can either turn back through one of the waymarked paths or carry on up the lane a little way.  Go past an old lime kiln and pick up the path again just after Sowden's Bridge.

The views along the estuary are lovely - especially in the Autumn.  But wear wellies - it gets very muddy.


There is a good path along the river from Sowden's Bridge, first through lovely woodland and then more open pasture land.
