Climbed up to golden cap from the Langdon Hill car park which has now reopened and enjoyed the amazing views over the golden coloured coastline way, way below. We then followed this up with a circular walk through the woods adjacent to the Langdon NT car park, which at this time of year are overflowing with bluebells. In fact we've never encountered such a density of bluebells in one wooded area, alas they won't last much longer!

You can park at Stonebarrow Hill (fees apply if not National Trust member), nearest town is Charmouth. Lovely walks across open countryside and cliffs up to Golden Cap (highest point in area). Bonus is lovely Crazy Cow coffee trailer which is quite new there I think. Located off the Stonebarrow HIll car park, next to the old radar station. Coffees, cakes, ice creams. Outdoor tables. And they manage the small toilet block there. Lovely area for coastal walks and sea views.

We walked from Charmouth to Golden Cap and back. Luckily the weather held up and, whilst exhilarating with the wind whipping off the sea, we really enjoyed reaching the top for the rewarding views.
Its tough in places, with some steep inclines and muddy sections in part, but with the right foot wear its possible to do for all abilities.

Over the years with the National Trust warden no longer onsite and the NT office having moved from Charmouth it felt as if we campers were no longer welcomed at St Gabriels,!!
The availability to visit went from any dates over the 12 months to just 2 months in the summer.
The foot path to St Gabriels beach was closed as they were not prepared to keep it maintained.
And this year the St Gabriels campsite is now been closed completely by the National Trust.
Having visited the site for the last 60 years I am very upset as this site holds many memories for 4 generations of our family.
The site was a wild camp, quiet, safe with no facilities (other than a tap and cess tank)
I understand how it may have become more tricky to sustain regarding the cess pit and sewage, but I just cannot see how you can take away this very special place from us.
Yes, we take this personally and I will not be supporting the National Trust in any way in future.
We know you do some good work – but this is a step too far.

We walked up from the beach at Seatown, it is around 1.5 miles, and uphill all the way, but with only a couple of short sections that could be called steepish. The views on the way up are great, but nothing to the views from the top. All the way along Chesil Beach to Portland in one direction, and to Charmouth and Lyme Regis in the other direction. You can take a shorter slightly easier walk from the NT car park, but it is much more satisfying starting at sea level.

Fabulous scenery and amazing coastal views.

Thoroughly recommend hiking some or even all of The South West Coastal path. Take walking poles as the path meanders up and down step hills.

We walked up to Golden Cap from Seatown, it’s about a mile up from the car park in Seatown. A fair climb, but this is the highest point on the south coast! We carried on past Golden Cap and turned right towards St Gabriel’s Wood, and right again back round past Langdon Hill where we did a circuit of the wood and then back down to Seatown. The entire walk was 4.5 miles and took us 1 hour 45 minutes.

Parked nearby (not in NT carpark) to give us a longer walk to the top. Amazing views from the top -furthe past the trig point. Walked down the other side, which was very steep and lots struggling, went past the church ruins and back up to a farm shop. Great walk and worth the views

The Stoneborrow car park affords lovely views over this famous headland. From here you can set out in any direction, on good way-marked paths; there's even one to climb to the highest point in Dorset, right by the coast.

The shop was closed, I believe it only opens in summer. Beware the drive up/down as the road is very narrow with few passing places.

We parked at the NT car park just off the A35 and walked through from Langdon Woods. The circular walk is well signed and on good form tracks.
Approximately half way round is the pathway up to Golden Cap, which crosses a couple a fields before a final set of steps upto the top of Golden Cap.
We were lucky in that it was a fine clear day and this afforded great views in all directions from the top.
