Starting from North Chideock, the route takes in Hell Lane, Symondsbury and a first-rate viewpoint of Allington Hill before returning along the Monarch's Way. There is a pub at one-quarter distance. Route includes a typical West Dorset path which doubles as a stream bed in wet weather. There are muddy spots in all but the driest of periods. Some 'stepless' stiles require climbing.

We did this walk after a prolonged dry spell but Hell Lane was very difficult to negotiate, even in those generally dry conditions. Deep mud, collapsed path and overhanging branches and vegetation made this section of the walk tricky and at times unpleasant. Other parts of the walk were also overgrown. We had to chop at stinging nettles and brambles in order to clamber safely And less painfully over stiles.

Have justed walked this route (30th Sept). Point 10, turn left at cottage. The farmer has planted maize, now 7ft tall over the paths and right up to hedge. We had to follow field boundary in two fields to find gates pushing our way through the maize. Not a comfortable experience. Impossible to follow angle across fields. A good walk before the maize grows!
