photos were taken around this walk. If you are feeling energetic
you can walk all around the Loe Pool (about 7 miles). It takes
approximately 3 hours to do the whole walk at an average pace
of the walks are tarmaced and some hard surface as shown.
Cyclists can cycle either into Helston, which is approx 2
miles through the walks, or to Loe Bar, approx 1 mile. You
are able to cycle all around Loe Pool (approx 7 miles).
Loe Bar is a great barrier of sand and flint which has been
formed over centuries by the winter gales and fierce under
currents piling it up at the mouth of the Cober Estuary.
lake behind the Bar is fresh water and forms the biggest stretch of
natural fresh water in Cornwall. The Lake is a haven for wild birds
and an ideal location for any bird enthusiasts.
