The New Forest National Park houses many beautiful walks, including this circular walk around the Wilverley Inclosure. The path is mostly flat and on man-made paths - be wary that the more natural paths tend to be muddy at times (however, by-passes can usually be found). There are a few wide gates, but there are no kissing gates or stiles on route. The wide open areas will give you a chance to see cattle, deer, and ponies. There are also plenty of resting benches along the way. Show more
