Organiser’s notes:

The  routes spectacular views on the ridgeway, will keep your mind on the scenery and not your weary legs.

This 10K route (approx. 6.75 miles) has a bit of everything. From the Springhead pub the route takes you along the valley below the ridgeway into the lovely village of Osmington. Heading through the village you leave it on the eastern side taking the bridleway on a steady gradient uphill to Pixon barn above Poxwell.

From here you head back towards Sutton Poyntz along the ridgeway the highest point being 158 metres at East hill and it is on this part of the route that you will be rewarded with some fantastic views of the Jurrassic coast.

Just before reaching coombe valley road the route takes you down hill past Chalbury hill fort back into the village of Sutton Poyntz and finishing the Springhead.
