|Length||4.0 miles (6.4 km)|
Part 2 of a challenging walk (7.0 miles / 11.2km in total), passing through the Axmouth to Lyme Regis Undercliffs National Nature Reserve, one the highlights of the Jurassic Coast. The landscape is a unique, wild area of landslides, tumbled coastline and luxuriant vegetation. It is a delightful route in spring, when the fresh-leaved woodland is carpeted with bluebells and wild garlic, with 'hosts of golden daffodils', and the bright air is full of birdsong.
This is a dog-friendly walk. Have a look at our Top Dog Walks on the South West Coast Path for more dog-friendly beaches and pubs.
This walk from Seaton to Lyme Regis has been split in half so that users of the printed map can see all parts of the walk. Part 1 can be seen here.
A challenging walk over uneven terrain, and due to the clay soils sections of the path can be muddy and slippery after wet weather. Note, once you have entered the Undercliff there are no paths leading inland (or seaward) and it generally takes about 3½-4 hours to reach Lyme Regis.
