Route Overview
A top coastal walk to one of the most famous landmarks on the Jurassic Coast – the Old Harry Rocks chalk stacks on Studland. Julia’s trail offers up views to the Needles and the Isle of Wight, along the ancient Dorset coastline and inland over the Purbeck Countryside. Taking in miles of golden sandy beaches, the dramatic history of the bay and internationally important heathlands, Julia’s walk offers a fantastic example of the British Coastline at it is best.
