Welcome to the Great Chalk Way

The Great Chalk Way is a family of established walking and riding routes linking the Dorset and Norfolk Coasts across central southern England following the ancient trading route along the chalk ridge, forming a coast to coast route of around 400 miles.

There are separate pages for each type of user – walking, mountain biking and equestrian. The routes vary slightly to reflect the different type of user.

The Great Chalk Way is promoted by a working group representing the family of routes that make up the Great Chalk Way.
