Nice enough walk. We went when it was nice weather but there were signs of muddy areas all along the route. Great walk for dogs, just be weary of ponies and sharp bushes tangling in their fur. There are 2 free car parks within 100yrds of the start/end point with much nicer views. it'll save you £3/4 and also give you a picnic spot to use.

Not the best.

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!

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.

Generally enjoyable mix of woodland and heaths with great views. Bit of a long NE slog across Ashley Range to Roger Penny Way. Alternate option with more parking is at Fritham (past Royal Oak). May be very muddy after wet weather. Also beware there are a number of stream crossings that may require balancing on logs or wading. Optional section at SW corner of route to Frogham allows trip to pub.

beginning of trail is gravel, last mile or so is muddy marshes

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.

A lovely walk, with the bonus of a nice pub ‘Queens Head’ at the end. The walk took just over an hour, but depends on pace. Rather muddy.

Dog and cycling friendly.

Last time we went, we could se so many deer, it was wonderful.

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

Very pleasant New Forest walk. It's quite wet underfoot in February but passable. Enjoy!

bit muddy but the beach part was the best

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.

Not an awful lot to say about this walk, I personally found it a tad boring BUT saying that it is the perfect walk with a buggy or a bike, nice gravely footpath so wellies weren't needed we parked in the pub car park and had a drink after.

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

Beautiful walk . dogs must be kept on leads .

Amazing trail with information on the tall trees. lots of other trails to follow for a longer new forest walk

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.

Lovely walk next to the river

It was easy to follow a nice evening stroll

very short but good for an evening after work to see the tree and the local deer

A very boring walk.

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.
