There is a great deal of industrial heritage and Bronze Age archaeology in this area of Bodmin Moor, together with modern developments such as Siblyback Lake and watersports centre. This walk takes you to all these beauty spots and others in addition. Walking across Bodmin Moor is generally much easier than on Dartmoor National Park, with mainly downland walking and relatively few tussocks. The walk is graded as moderate only because of two moderate climbs, one up to the magnificent Cheesewring and Bronze Age hill-fort and the other from Sibleyback Reservoir back to Bodmin Moor and on up to the top of Tregarrick Tor. You have ample opportunity to see ponies, sheep, cattle, birds of prey and lots of ducks and geese down at Sibleyback, as well as windsurfers hurtling around the lake on a windy day. Siblyback is at the western extremity of the walk and there are toilets and a restaurant there, as well as a small children's adventure playground, so good for the kids as well. Overall it is a very enjoyable walk for you, with some splendid sights en route.

A superb walk over Bodmin moor. We would recommend that you do not entertain this walk unless you have at least a compass and map. A GPS is preferable and made this a pleasant walk as we had confidence we were heading in the right direction! Careful how you descend the cheeswring, we went the dangerous way and it was a little hairy! but other than this error on our part, a truly rewarding walk. Best on a sunny day but still good if a little cloudy. 8/10.
