Choose your day well for your climb up Tregonning Hill and you’ll be rewarded with stunning views over Mounts Bay, the Lizard and beyond. It’s the highest summit in the area and from the Bronze Age has been an important feature shaped by man. Old meets new on this walk, from Castle Pencaire to modern communication. Located in the centre of a once thriving mining area, the hill was an important resource too, with its china clay pits and stone quarries. Now nature is taking over once more and part of the hill is designated a Site of Special Scientific Interest.
