The Jurassic Coast is undeniably a beautiful part of the world, so it’s no surprise that people love to get outside and walk over the cliffs and through the countryside to take in the fantastic views. We produced this walking guide to get you inspired to lace up your walking boots and get stomping along the coast path and some of the many footpaths and bridleways that criss-cross West Dorset.
Walking is a great, free activity that can be enjoyed by the whole family so we’ve designed a selection of walks starting at or near our Bridport-based parks, with a range of routes so there’s something for everyone. They are easy to adapt to make longer if you’re feeling adventurous, or shorter if you’ve got children in tow.
To view the routes on an interactive map, you can scan the QR codes using a smartphone, or click the links at the bottom of each page.
Parking is free at Highlands End for anyone using the facilities or following one of our walks. At our other parks, you may need to park nearby if you are not staying on the park.
When walking, please follow the countryside code, stick to designated footpaths and keep dogs under control, especially around livestock. Take extra care when near cliffs – make sure not to go close to the edge and keep your dogs on a lead. Always take a charged mobile phone, especially if you are walking alone.
