Jurassic Coast Trek
4-6 October 2024

September 15, 2023

The Jurassic coast is well known for its walking wonder and now we are partnering with Discover Adventure on the 4-6 October 2024, to bring you one of Dorset’s most renowned challenges – the Jurassic Coast Weekend Trek.

Stretching 95 miles between Old Harry Rocks in Dorset, to Orcombe Point in East Devon, the Jurassic Coast is England’s first Natural World Heritage Site and the most geologically diverse coastline in the world.

The exposed cliff sections allow you to look back through 185 million years of time where dinosaur remains have been found once upon a time it is not only a winner for walkers, it is a fossil-hunter’s paradise.

With a more recent history of mining, shipwrecks and smuggling, this is a fascinating stretch of coastline. Throughout this weekend Trek, you can take in some of its most spectacular scenery from the renowned natural stone archway of Durdle Door to the beautiful circular Lulworth Cove as we continually climb and descend the steep hills of the Jurassic Coast.

You will join groups of people along the way from all parts of the UK and sometimes all over the world, everybody on this challenge will camp at a lovely campsite a short distance away from the route.
