The County of Dorset is blessed with some beautiful countryside with a large proportion designated as Areas of Outstanding Natural Beauty from Golden Cap in the west to Durleston Country Park in the east and extending into Cranborne Chase in the north. The Natural World Heritage Site of the Jurassic Coast continues from the county boundary to Old Harry Rocks in the east. Poets, writers and artists have been among the many that enjoy the numerous picturesque and interesting villages and hamlets which can only be seen at their best when walking.
The range of walks put on by the various groups is an ideal way to enjoy the diverse countryside, and appreciate the best of rural and coastal walking.

Most groups organise regular walks led by local experts – a great way to get outside, make new friends and discover how walking boosts your health and happiness. You’re very welcome to try walking with us, or to get involved in looking after paths and green spaces and opening up new places to explore.
