A map is recommended as it will give you some alternatives routes should you wish to avoid any steep downhill and uphiill sections at some stages. This may increase the distance walked at times although not by a great amount.
If the terrain is good underfoot, trainers may be acceptable but walking boots are recommended to be certain of good support and grip as some parts can stay wet for some time and the clay soil, found at some stages, can remain a little slippery.
Visit the Long Distance Walkers Association (LDWA) site for Dorset for confirmation of the official walk date.
