this is a lovely walk mainly on one level with a few small slopes, no hills. Ideal for the starter walker. It has the great views over Portland docks as well as Weymouth.

The problem with this walk is that most of it is in cuttings of the old railway so there is no real views for much of it. Popular with dog walkers, watch out for cyclists!

A lovely push chair friendly walk. Lovely coastal views on a clear sunny day. Would have benefited from a cafe at the end of the trail!! We really enjoyed it with a push chair and two dogs it was a nice walk to do
