The village of Treen is situated about
3½ miles east-southeast of Land`s End .
Treen is a good base for local cliff-walking and birdwatching ;
as well as the nearest point of access to the famous Logan Rock
; and Pednvounder Beach.
Two paths leave Treen towards the cliff ; one (the larger path)
works its way past the Camp Site and reaches the cliff above PednVounder
beach , whilst the second path takes a more southeasterly route
across fields to emerge onto the cliff at Treen Castle , on which
stands the famous Logan Rock. Both routes join the South West Coast
Path at the cliff - approximately one mile distance.
Pednvounder Beach is virtually covered at high tide - so for a successful
day`s beaching here it is important to choose a day when low water
occurs round mid-day. The descent to the beach is fairly steep,
down a well worn path - with an akward little climb down at the
end. This should present no problem to a reasonably fit person.
Pednvounder is popular with naturists.......and there is no dog
ban in force here .
Treen village has a shop/cafe , public
telephone, public toilets and a public house - the Logan Rock Inn.
There is car parking for roughly 50 cars (£1 pay and display
Treen Camp Site is situated part way between the village and the
cliff - and has full facilities . Administered from the Village

through St.Buryan ; two miles southwest of St.Buryan the road traverses
Penberth Valley , at the top of the hill on the far side of the
valley turn left to Treen (Logan Rock).

half a mile east of Land`s End ; continue through Polgigga and carry
on past the Porthcurno turning . Just after the entrance to Trendrennen
Farm on the right, the road starts downhill (Hangman`s Hill). Take
the sharp right turn at the bottom of the hill to Treen (Logan Rock).
