1. The walk begins at the car park which is opposite a boating lake. Cross over a bridge just outside of the car park and begin heading south, keeping the small River Cober to your left.
2. Follow the path along the edge of the river. You will initially have a field to your right, before this turns to trees.
3. If you remain on this riverside path, turn right at the end of it and it will rejoin the main trail.
4. Remain on the path and you will reach Stables Cafe, which is about 30-40 minutes into the walk, and is a dog-friendly cafe. Begin your route back to Helston Coronation Park, its boating lake and café.
