At just over three miles (4.8 km) including the diversions, this is a fine stride along one of the most unspoilt parts of the Jurassic Coast.
Starting from the National Trust's South Down car park above Ringstead Bay, it heads out along the inland side of the coastal ridge before turning towards the sea at Chaldon Down.
Whilst there are some good views inland on the way out, the return along the cliff edge is spectacular, particularly from the end of White Nothe.
Slightly annoyingly, doing the walk this way round, the best of the views always seem to be behind you but, speaking personally, it seems to work better getting the inland yomp out of the way first. Doing it the other way round would be a bit of an anti-climax.
