Did this walk from Padstow onto Stepper point and Trevone then back to Padstow. Takes about 2/3 hours depending on stops to take in the fabulous views.

Thank you for your review. Perhaps we'll need to go back and reconsider our original recommendation for easy access. I'll pass your comments onto the National Trails Offcier for the Souith West Coast Path.

By parking near Hawkers Cove we had a great walk to Stepper point and then via Pepper Hole. Great views across next headland. Not that much ascent involved but outstanding views.
