Nice easy little walk along the side of the stream. Trees provided some welcome shade on a hot and sunny day.

One section went through a field with angry cows with calves - we had to detour around!

Stunning scenery. Easy walking for all ages with option of shortcutting if required.

Another trail where the footpath goes to a chained and padlocked 5 bar gate. Don’t know what’s going on with these New Forest walks.

Lovely walk would definitely do this again dog friendly, the car park they wanted you to park in was full the best place to park is down by the marina along bath road there were plenty of spaces there,

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.

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.

the trail itself was great but for some reason the map tracked that we done 26k when we only done 9.5 and showed a route that we didnt do.

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.
