Coosebean Enchanted Nature Trail

The enchanted trail is a beautiful hidden treasure on the edge of our great little city, popular with families and dog walkers alike.

Maintained by Chris Waddle, the Countryside Ranger for Truro City Council and his team, along with many, many volunteers and craftsmen, this woodland area takes you along the River Kenwyn, close to Victoria Gardens.

During the winter it is often very muddy and certain areas can become boggy due to the natural water runoff, however the team work hard to make the walk as accessible as possible creating boardwalks and laying bark on the footpath, but it is definitely advised to wear wellies.

The Northern Meadows are beautifully maintained with trees planted across selected sites, with the help of local schools and community groups, to enhance biodiversity in the area.  Nothing is wasted, cuttings from diseased Ash trees were recently used to create a dead hedge along the pathway.

And of course, the Trail is ever changing as we while our way through the seasons so take a wander down to Coosebean regularly as there is always something new to see and explore.
