Residents can find out more about walking and cycling routes in their local area with a series of maps aimed at helping them to stay active and explore their communities.

Produced by Cornwall Council, in partnership with Sustrans, the maps highlight traffic free cycle routes and shared paths and also give an indication of how long it will take to walk or cycle.

Maps are available for Bodmin; Camborne, Pool, Redruth and Illogan; Falmouth; Hayle, St Erth and St Ives; St Austell, St Blazey and Par; and Truro. They can be found at

Councillor Geoff Brown, Cornwall Council cabinet portfolio holder for transport, said: “With lockdown curtailing trips further afield, the active travel maps are a good reminder that there can be lots to explore from our own doorstep.

“Not taking the car for that local journey not only has obvious health benefits but also improves air quality.”

Dave Davies, Sustrans active travel officer, said; “These maps provide a great way to plan our journeys more actively. It’ll be useful for people planning their journeys, to schools, colleges and workplaces when the Covid restrictions are lifted. I would like to thank the communities involved for their support and local knowledge in creating our active travel maps.”

Further active travel maps are being put together for Saltash and Newquay and are expected to be available later this spring, as well as updates to the Falmouth and Penryn and Truro maps. The Camborne, Pool, Redruth and Illogan map has recently been updated to combine previous separate maps for the area and includes new cycling and walking infrastructure.
