Portland's great too.

Basically go along the coast either way,or inland up to Hardy's monument,where there's a few long distance trails to join.

The purbecks area around Corfe castle gives great views off the dorset coastline. Well worth the climb up onto the ridge looking over sea :wink:

Any suggestions for further into West Dorset? I was over that way a couple of weeks ago round Hawkchurch/Marshwood and did the old hill forts, but I'll be based in Axminster area (without car) & could do with finding a few routes in the Dorset direction. I'm pretty familiar with the East Devon Shute-Woodbury side as I used to live round that way.. :wink:
