Golden Cap, the highest point on the south coast with great views over the countryside and coast. The climb up is not for the fainthearted and the lack of any protection at the cliff edges when you get to the top is a real issue for family groups – they may be fitter, don’t let children run ahead!

I climbed up from Charmouth and it was well worth the climb. Absolutely stunning views as far as Portland Bill. There is a nearby car park if you don't fancy the climb that is just off the A35 and pretty cheap.

A fantastic walk from Type up to Golden Cap and back. Plenty of refreshment breaks at Seafoam. Coffee and cake from the campsite or pub lunch both great.

An excellent walk from Stonebarrow Hill NT car park to Golden Cap. Although novice map readers the route was well signposted so easy to navigate. Beautiful views throughout the walk. Hilly at times, but not too taking.

Walked from Stonebarrow to the top of Golden Cap - about 5 mile round trip. Quite strenuous but well worth it with lovely countryside and views./

We parked at Langdon Woods and did a circular walk including Copse Wood and St Gabriel's. Took time to get to the top of Golden Cap for amazing views of the coast line.

A challenging climb to the top of Golden Cap but well worth the effort with views across the Jurassic coastline.
