Is this hike challenging?

This hike is classed as moderate. You should be comfortable with hiking for a total hike time of 3.5-4hr. The trail is mostly on unpaved trails and is also undulating with a lot of inclines. If it has rained it can be slippery on the hills.


Please bring your own lunch and snacks. There will also be food and drinks sold from the cafe at Birling Gap, but this will be towards the end of the hike.

Will we hike if it’s raining?

Yes! Bring your waterproofs

Is there parking if I drive?

Please look up parking in advance if coming by car. Recommended to stay in a carpark that allows more than 8hr stay. There is a car park at the station but it fills up quickly, so it’s a good idea to have a plan B!
Please allow enough time as we will depart promptly at 10:30am.

What happens if theres a rail strike?
