Walk - Charmouth from Golden Cap Holiday Park
4.7 miles (7.5 km)
Golden Cap Holiday Park - DT6 6JX Golden Cap Holiday Park
Challenging - A rollercoaster ride of a walk, with an optional detour around the highest peak of Golden Cap for those who consider the rest of the walk to contain enough ascent and descent, this route travels high (and sometimes low!) along the edge of cliffs carved and sculpted by rain and sea over millions of years.
At the foot of the cliffs at Charmouth nestle treasure troves of fossils brought down by frequent rockfalls. Scientists have been able to use these to give dates to various geological events, as well as piecing together fragments of dinosaur bone to draw a picture of one of the monsters roaming here in prehistoric times. Inland there is a pastoral landscape of medieval fields and farms.
