As outlined in Criag Weatherhill's "Belerion" (1981) this track ran between St. Just and St. Ives just south of the main ridge escarpment and passing close by an exhaustive list of the main sites of the area, including Carn Kenidjack. Tregeseal Stone Circle, Boswens Menhir, Chun Castle and Chun Quoit, Bosullow Trehyllys, the Men-an-Tol, the Men Scryfa, Zennor Quoit and Rosewall Hill. Weatherhill posits that the path forks at SW464363 with one arm heading south to St. Micheal's Mount.
Basically if you've ever visited a few of these sites, you've traversed this bronze age trading route.
