Orienteer in one of the old stream valleys (chines) cut into the soft cliffs near Boscombe Pier.

Flower beds and landscaping.

3 courses on one map:
Easy  2.0 km

Medium 2.6 km

Long 3.4  km

All three courses are technically easy but both the Medium and Long courses involve climbing the zig-zag path up

The cliff and so are much more arduous than the Easy course.

Other Things to do in the Area

Sand castles! Paddling!
