Walking in the New Forest

The 'New Forest' is where you can explore heathland, ancient woodland, wetlands and grassy plains. Many of the enclosures have both deciduous and coniferous woodland to wander through on those hot summer days.

The New Forest National Park website has a wide range of information on walking in the New Forest National Park

A number of self-guided walks have been devised to help you explore those hidden corners of the new National Park as well as the New forest area. You will find a number of guided walks throughout the year.

The Forestry Commission have a variety of guided walks during the winter months throughout the New Forest National Park. These walks are very popular so booking may be required.

Important information

Beware that commoner's ponies and cattle roam freely across the forest, which helps to manage the vegetation whilst they graze.

Please remember the Country Code at all times.
