Walk - Hooken Cliffs
4.1 miles (6.5 km)
Anchor Inn, Beer - EX12 3ET Anchor Inn
Moderate - There are steep ascents and descents including a long flight of steps down. The path travels close so the cliff edge so take great care.
A ramble through the Hooken Undercliff, where a dramatic landslip in 1790 left a tumbled landscape where thick vegetation is speared through by spectacular white cliffs and pinnacles, providing a haven for wildlife. Returning along the clifftops above, where there are spectacular views in either direction of red cliffs soaring beyond the white, the walk links the villages of Beer and Branscombe with tales of smugglers, Romans and lacemakers.
Part of this walk takes in the Mason's Trail.
East Beach, Beer is a dog friendly beach. At Branscombe dogs are allowed on part of the beach all year. Dogs are not allowed 150m East and West of the pole in front of the café.
