This is a four-hour walk taking in:

* Lulworth Cove

This is a really pretty cove, and it is the variety of geology that gives us this landscape. The sea has hollowed out the softer rocks to form a perfect horseshoe.

* Stair Hole

Here we see the famous Lulworth Crumple, which is a complex fold formed by major earth movements that occurred in the same period that the Alps were formed. About 25 million years ago Africa collided with Europe and the enormous earth movements created the Alps.

* Man o' War Bay

Take the stairs down to the sea if you want to have a paddle!

* Durdle Door

After reaching Man o War Bay view point, Durdle Door is another 2 minute walk further West along the coast path.

* Hambury Tout

From Durdle Door View Point, follow the chalk path up the hill to Durdle Door car park. Walk through the car park and across the stile, following the sign posts, towards Hambury Tout. Enjoy the magnificent view when you arrive!

* Lulworth Fossil Forest

This part of the walk is only possible when the Range Walks are open. Check the government website for details.

* Mupe Rocks and Mupe Bay

Once you have explored the Fossil Forest, return to the Range Walks entrance. Follow the path East along the coast until you are greeted by glorious views of Mupe Rocks, then further on the sheltered Mupe Bay. To return, follow the signposted route back to Lulworth Cove, then back to the car park.
