Too much of this walk is along busy roads which is not pleasant however what is off road is wonderful and peaceful. A few bits are just out and back so got a little bit confused. Was a nice walk but I am not in any hurry to do it again

This trial is ok, it gets a 1 star on the basis that the route on the app doesnt quite match the trial when your out there, it also says its a 19.5km trial which it is not, i parked and started a bit further away from the mapped start point and still only clocked 16.1km. Also the route verified and completed on the app when i was only half way through which was strange. Now if you were to do this trial on a mountain bike or trial run it, then it will be fairly enjoyable, its a mixture of road and trial and has wide paths, is all flat (zero climbs) and does have some nice nature bits along the way. However hiking it, it was a bit boring, being that its all path, i prefer personally to be off civilian paths and exploring, plus being over taken by cars whilst walking on the road isnt much fun, and that is how the route starts and ends and that makes up id say around 8km of the overall trial.

Beautiful walk. Good variation of scenery and very beautiful. Muddy for the first km but then not too wet. Best to go when it’s fairly dry. Nice quick morning walk.

An easy and fun trail with beautiful, huge trees! It’s like a little bit of America in the UK!! There is also other foreign trees such as beautiful eucalyptus from Australia to see in the arboretum. Really recommend this walk, it was magical!

This is a decent walk dog friendly, very muddy the first stretch of the walk, then the 2nd part is a lot nicer , a bit confusing through the start of science university , just walk down the road towards the campus and at the back you will find the big fir trees, would walk here again

Very nice walk in the woods. The main path wasn’t always easy to be followed, so make sure your phone is fully charged before starting your adventure. Abundant wildlife...several deer sightings. Of course the donkeys and horses. Some boggy trail areas, so be prepared for a little mud.

Pleasant walk but mostly on quiet roads. View from the hill was good. May go back and try some of the paths that go into the woods.

Amazing trees and good information en route. Slightly closer to the road than I'd usually like but still a great walk

Not the most enjoyable walk and wet in the first stretch. Don't think we'll be doing it again.

Did this lovely scenic walk today - the ferry trip is the cream on the cake for me but there are some nice looking pubs too nearby (The Jolly Sailor, The Vine Inn, The Fox and Hounds and the Lone Barn as well as lots of places to explore in Hamble) so I will definitely be back! A few comments which may be helpful: most of the walk is gravelled paths. I was wearing track shoes and it was fine. Parking at Bursledon Station - I found this a bit confusing because I approached from Hamble and the road is permanently closed! So make sure you approach from Bursledon. Walking on roads - High Street is quiet and fine to walk along, but you can avoid the rather treacherous Satchel Lane altogether by crossing it and going onto the heathland directly opposite when you come out of the footpath near waypoint 1. I've included a photograph too - it's where lots of walkers park too so you can see their cars. Thanks for posting this walk - very enjoyable all year round, I think!

Lovely walk on a beautiful clear winter day. Woods and fields to the Solent coastline. A cup of tea and slice of cake in Lepe Park half way round. Perfect.

Such a nice place, I recommend keeping small children and dogs away from horses.

Easy 10km, though a little confusing along the shore - it was high tide at the time and seemed like there wasn’t going to be a path all the way around but I’m glad I chanced it as it was mostly fine. You do have to climb over some tree trunks along the shore but it’s such a beautiful spot that it was well worth it. Also the last turn off from the road to the field was pretty hard to spot due to overgrowth, it was mostly just a hole in the bushes that you have to climb through.

Has everything, pub (jolly sailor overlooking harbour), woodland, pasture, Hamble Town with it's pubs /café /restaurants /quay and boats with a trip across river. Lovely when the sun is shining

Great trail for the novice. Woods to beach, meadows, tilled fields, wildflowers, wildlife, something for everyone. Good cutoffs to other footpaths. Some of the trek is on hard surfaces roads, some on rock country lanes, some through marsh and mud.

Avoid in wet winters. There are two sections of 0.5 to 1 mile which after rain basically become an exercise in finding your way around or through swamps!
