 Tramper Routes

 Golden Cap viewpoint

The route takes you to a lovely viewpoint where you can see across to Lyme Regis in the west and Golden Cap (the highest point on the Southwest coast) to the east. Birds including stonechats and occasionally the Dartford Warbler can be seen, as well as a variety of seabirds offshore and butterflies too

Cains Folly viewpoint

 A circular route around Stonebarrow Hill, taking in views of Lyme Regis, Devon and the route back to the base rewards you with distant views of Golden Cap. Bird song, wind rustling through the gorse and dappled sunlight are some of the highlights on this trail. In the spring and summer there are carpets of wildflowers including orchids.
