The Camel Trail

Connecting Wadebridge, Padstow and Bodmin, this scenic cycling trail has been created on the old railway line. The whole trail is 18 miles long and it's all traffic-free and quite level. Hire bikes in Wadebridge and cycle 5.5 miles alongside the estuary to Padstow, or 5.75 miles through countryside and woodland to Bodmin. From Bodmin, you can then cycle just over 6 miles to Wenfordbridge.

Walking

Wadebridge is home to Saints Way, a 16 mile cross country walking route, forged in ancient times by Celtic saints between Padstow and Fowey. The walk takes you past pretty creeks and villages, and through the ancient town of Lostwithiel. Bodmin Moor is also nearby which is fantastic for walking and there are numerous coastal paths near Wadebridge to discover as well.
