Poole Harbour Trails


Poole Harbour is Europe’s largest natural harbour and the the second largest in the world! It is a stunning location to explore with wonderful views together with access to some stunning countryside, woodland, heaths, farmland and beaches. It is rich in wildlife and has attractive towns and villages set in some of the best walking areas in South West England.

Poole Harbour Trail’s has been developed by a groupl of local volunteers to improve access and information on a number of walks that can be taken around the Poole Harbour area. They have marked routes arund the Harbour includig the areas of Sandbanks, Studland, Norden, Wareham, Sandford, Turlin Moor, and Poole Quay. There have created leaflets for six linear walks around Poole Harbour which are way marked, if possible, at the more important junctions.
