Run by the national trust this wonderful area of land is a walkers paradise. Best approached by car to save your walking for the upper levels where you can experience the wonderful Jurassic coast views.plenty of car parking and hidden picnic areas.

This is a fantastic walk with amazing views. It is higher than you might expect and makes it a good challenge but once on the cap the views are amazing and it ha the feeling of peaceful and remote place. We walked up and back from Chideock.

We parked at the NT car park where used the facilities and had excellent coffees on our return. We continued along Stonebarrow Lane and reached Golden Cap, the highest point on the south coast, via St Wite's Well and St Gabriel's Chapel. The last part was a stiff climb but helped by steps near the top. The views westwards over... More

There are wonderful walks around Golden Cap estate but going to the top of Golden Cap is a must just to admire the view alone. On a clear day can see east to Portland BIll and west way down the Devon coast. Climbing down to the Anchor Inn at Seatown for a hearty meal caps off a great day out.

Golden Cap is the highest point on the South Coast but does not require the most effort to scale. Many high points (particularly in Cornwall) involve a steep climb, often with long flights of steps. The rounder shape of Golden Cap means a less stressful climb and, when approaching from the West, the final section is a zigzag which makes... More

We parked at Langdon Hill National Trust car park near Chideock in Dorset and from here walked to Golden Cap, it was a beautiful day and the views were amazing ! We then decided to walk on into Charmouth, approx 3 miles. The walk was quite challenging as the area is very hilly, so lots of fairly steep steps and... More

Fantastic walk up to the top of Golden Cap, we were actually staying right near the Anchor Pub so didn't have to drive, but there is a car park you can use. The walk was steady and although the ''top'' looks quite far away we were there sooner than we thought. The scenery is amazing with all the rolling hills... More

Fantastic views and a must for walkers. Park at the National Trust car park and follow the signs for a great circular walk.
