With nineteenth century origins as a coastguard patrol route to restrict smuggling, the modern day South West Coast Path is Britain's longest waymarked footpath. This challenging National Trail hugs the coast from Minehead in Somerset, all the way around the South West peninsula of Cornwall before ending at Studland in Dorset. The full path is not for the fainthearted; it runs for 630 miles up and down endless cliffs which, when added together give a height gain of almost four times the height of Mount Everest. But the path is not solely the domain of the endurance walker. Its various segments are enjoyed by many millions of visitors throughout the year, who come to marvel at the natural scenery on offer. This is the true wonder of the South West Coast Path; this single trail connects visitors with some of the finest coastal scenery to be found anywhere in the world.
