The South Dorset Ridgeway is part of the South West Coast Path national trail.

The ridgeway provides a superb inland route with long views over the Jurassic Coast and Dorset countryside. The area is also criss-crossed by a network of footpaths and bridleways that can provide anything from a short and easy walk to more challenging walking, cycling and riding. 

The Landscape Partnership, with Dorset Countryside, is dedicated to improving the rights of way in the area. 

Our website lists some of our best walks if you fancy a lone wander; meanwhile there are lots of guided walks if you are after something more sociable.
