The Bodmin Moor Ten Tors Walk

Section Two -  Jamaica Inn to Boscastle - Bodmin Ten Tors Walk

Distance – 16 miles 

Grade –Strenuous walking on open moorland for the first seven miles that would be severe in bad weather. What these grades mean.  After leaving the moor moderate walking to Boscastle but with altitude very much in your favour as you are dropping from the highest point in Cornwall to sea level in one days walk.
