Cycle Steps
This trail is across farmland and coastal paths, with the expectation of returning by steam train from Swanage. Start at Norden station and travel towards Arne, breaking to the right to follow the marked cycle path across farmland and pine forests to Studland beach. Pick your way past the beach huts and follow the lanes until you head out to Old Harry rocks for dramatic sea views, before climbing the headland and zigzagging down to Swanage seafront. Then head into town and towards the station for a lovely tea and a steamride back to your car.
Landmarks/Pubs for lunch/Sites to see?
Cross country is filled with wildlife and flowers, then stunning 'sea-nery' as you follow the coastline. Many refreshments along the beach at Studland and on the seafront in Swanage.
