England’s first natural World Heritage site, the Jurassic Coast in the South of England stretches 95 miles (153km) from Orcombe Point at Exmouth, East Devon, to Old Harry Rocks at Studland, Dorset.
With rocks dating back 185 million years, it forms part of the much longer South West Coast Path trail, covering a 630-mile (1,014km) route around the coastline of the South West peninsula. The Jurassic Coast area is a fossil hunter’s dream, with dinosaur remains having been found here.
You will walk approximately 25 miles (40km) along the beautiful coastal path from Lulworth to Studland, taking around 10-12 hours. The undulating cliffs provide stunning views over the sea and surrounding landscape and offer a very worthy challenge!
This trek is graded challenging because of the steep and rugged terrain and many hours of walking, but anyone who is reasonably fit can walk the Jurassic Coast Path.
You need to be in good health and of good fitness, with bucket-loads of determination. If you are the sort of person who can dig deep and doesn’t give up, then this is for you!
