    Stage one though Dorset is the hardest section of The Old Chalk Way, characterised by relentless steep hills and few resupply options en-route.

    

    You will be rewarded with beautiful views, a few field crossings, Iron Age forts, prime gravel tracks though woodland, and a disused railway line.
