Cycling & bike hire at Deerpark, Cornwall

Hire your cycles at Deerpark and pedal off to explore the gunpowder and tin mining history of this wooded valley. Take the trails direct from your cabin and ask the team at the Forest Hub for maps and information about other local cycle rides.
Seaton Valley Countryside Park

Countryside and seaside

Either drive down to Seaton or, if you are feeling energetic, add the 12-mile journey to your cycle ride. The loop around Seaton Valley Countryside Park itself is a short, 3-mile cycle for all the family. It takes you along the river, down by the coast and through a nature reserve where you might see otters, kingfishers, dormice and butterflies.

Lanhydrock Bike Trail

Fun for all abilities

A gentle ride at Lanhydrock Gardens takes you deep into little-explored woodland. Perfect for families, even with little ones, it is a wide, accessible trail which presents no challenges but lots of interest. Best of all, you can finish at the adventure playground – where there is also a café to replenish your energy. There are also some short Blue (moderate) trails and a Red (difficult) bike skills section.

The Camel Trail

A family day out

The Camel Trail follows a former railway line for easy, off-road cycling through some of Cornwall’s prettiest inland areas. Start out at Bodmin and enjoy moorland, woodland and estuary views before arriving in Padstow for Rick Stein’s famous fish and chips - you will need the energy for the 18-mile return journey. The Camel Trail is part of the National Cycle Network and the Sustrans website has more information about the cycle routes in Cornwall, including the 123-mile Cornish Way.

The Caradon Trail

For more experienced cyclists

The Caradon Trail is an on-road trail of 17 miles with some shorter loops. You will need experience of cycling on country lanes for this sign-posted route but the rewards are a tour through the history and landscape of south-east Cornwall, including ancient standing stones, industrial heritage landmarks, waterfalls and woods, river valleys and abundant wildlife.

Truro Clay Trails

Short enjoyable cycle trails

The 250-year-old clay mining industry is to thank for the peaceful Clay Trails near St. Austell. This former industrial area is being transformed into a wooded wildlife haven with tree-planting and careful environmental management. The mostly off-road trails run through this lovely setting and are ideal cycling routes for families or couples.

Cardinham Woods

The Bodmin Beast in Cardinham Woods is a 12km Blue (moderate) cycle trail, great for mountain bikers to test their skills. With technical climbs and thrilling descents, the snaking single track trail also features tight bermed corners, rollers and table tops.
