This is a walk I have done many times since retiring, and is a good work out. Leave your car at The Smugglers and take the steep climb towards Ringstead. From then on it is quite undulating, the first climb being the stiffest. On the...More

We hiked the Weymouth to Lulworth section in late autumn and were rewarded with some memorable coastal views, steep cliffs, some think vegetation sections, well maintained paths through to some quite difficult and thick muddy and slippery sections ( it had rained quite a bit)....More

This walk came towards the end of our six days completing the SWCP from St. Ives to Poole. It is relatively easier than some other sections which actually gives you more time to admire the views and appreciate nature’s beauty around you.

We found this walk on the smugglers inn website and decided to give it a go. It was a 6km walk starting and finishing at the Smugglers, via Ringstead. A bit hilly as you would expect in places, but a super walk. Great coastal views,...More

Some of the best coastline and views over Weymouth worth searching out...plenty of coastal erosion in evidence but path well maintained
