This is another very interesting part of the Jurassic Coast section of the SWCP, offering some quite testing walking, great views all the way and a useful stopping point in Lulworth, although note that it does get very busy on sunny weekends.

A great walk across Bindon Hill down to Fossil Forest offering fantastic views across the Cove and the surrounding cliffs. Very steap stairs down from the top of the cliff towards the beach

Great walk, amazing views, lots of gentle ascending steps, very muddy so good walking boots are a must plus a warm hat and very bracing winds on this coastal path work.
