This circular walk starts at the National Trust's Stonebarrow Hill car park and reaches Seatown, with the Anchor Inn, at the halfway point. There is car parking opposite the pub, so if desired the walk can be started from there, although you'll deny yourself the opportunity of a refreshing drink part way round! The countryside in this part of coastal West Dorset is truly lovely and the views along the Jurassic Coast are spectacular, especially from the top of Golden Cap, the highest point on the south coast at 627 feet. Paths are generally good and wayfinding is easy. The ascent to the summit of Golden Cap requires some effort, but is not difficult and the rewards far outweigh the effort required.

Completed this walk on a very sunny late October day and the views throughout the walk were spectacular especially from the top of Golden Cap. The climb to the sumit of Golden Cap is quite strenious but worth the effort and some of the tracks were very muddy along the route so good walking boots recommended.

A wonderful circular route. We did it on a mild sunny November day. Arrived at the Anchor (very nice pub) for a refreshment and sat outside with hardly anyone around. Just magnificent. Highly recommend this walk out of season.
