We begin from the car park in the hamlet of Treen by taking the footpath seawards to join the coastal path. From here is a magnificent and easy ramble past emblematic Logan's Rock steeply down to the wonderful little working fishing port of Penberth Cove. From here we could opt to shorten the walk and return direct to Treen, described in the text. Continuing along the coastal path steeply out of the cove, we soon reach a second point at which the walk could be shortened, again described in the text.

The full walk now continues along the coastal path and includes a very steep descent and stepped climb out of Porthguanon Cove. After about a kilometre we leave the coastal path and follow a truly delightful forest footpath beside a stream northwards to the B road that connects Treen with Newlyn. Next, we have an unavoidable stretch along this little road of about a kilometre. In the season it can be fairly busy. Once off the road we have an easy ramble through Burnewhall Farm complex back down to the coastal path once again. In a couple of hundred metres, we leave the coastal path and take a gently descending footpath back down into Penberth Cove. From here we follow a lovely, wooded footpath climbing up to wide open, grassy fields. A few minutes more brings us back to the car park at Treen.

Walk checked September 2022 and minor text amendments made. All good and this remains a brilliant hike in the right weather.
