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.

  • Coosebean Woodland is included in our  Wild Truro guide which highlights walking routes in and around the city.  Routes include the City Centre trail, which guides people around the city via the natural open spaces and the floral displays created by the Parks Department.  Other woodland walks, including Glasteinan Woods and Coosebean Woodland, are also featured.  
  • Printed versions of the guide are available from the Visit Truro Visitor Information Centre on Boscawen Street, Truro Community Library, Pollen in the Park, and Boscawen Park Cafe.
