Very beautiful path that leads mainly through light deciduous forests. Good driveability or driveability in dry conditions. Some branches or trunks are on the way, but they can easily be bypassed. Very nice are the old trees and grazing animals (horses, donkeys, cows, etc.), which are found everywhere.

Very nice and simple route, always on a clearly distinguishable path. went on a dry, sunny day so the walk itself was very enjoyable.

Beautiful out and back walk, amazing scenery. Bucklers Hard a perfect place to stop for a picnic.. Beautiful!

Lovely walk, albeit a little tough to navigate without the GPS when in the woods!

My boyfriend and I wanted an easy short walk through the woods and this was perfect. It was very hot when we went so no issues with crossing any rivers, having a fully charged phone with GPS helped stay on route. We parked at the Lyndhurst library and walked from there to the start of the route, but there is a good car park very near the route called Swan Green near the Swan pub, would advise starting from there! Enjoy! It’s a lovely walk.

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.

Great trail for hiking, and would be awesome for trial running in dry weather. Plenty of different terrains and views, the trial did have its muddy and boggy parts and there was a small river to cross (through the water) so def recommend water proof shoes. GPS is very helpful i wouldnt of been able to complete it without. You wont end up completely lost but its easy to get of track. Overall really enjoyed the trial and will return in dryer weather to run it.

Nice walk for the majority of it, over heathland and through peaceful forest but didn't want to do the 20 minute stretch along the road so deviated from the set path just after the pub.

Wonderful walk, great for off lead dog walking, BUT make sure you have a fully charged phone with gps, I think I’d still be walking around now if I didn’t have mine

Brilliant walk, little muddy and a farmers field to cut through which was pretty fun!

Not a bad walk, we started in Burley and walked out pat the tea room. Follow the road a little and then jump on the footpath on the right. Then it gets a bit narrow- we had a stroller so had to carry it a bit. The rest is super easy- mostly gravel path. Stop at the tea room at the end

Pro's: -great for dogs  (but be prepared to give them a bath when you've finished) -varied wildlife Inc deer, cows, sheep, ponies and a rare bird sanctuary. -very quiet and with few people cons: -muddy/boggy in places and at least 3 streams to cross. Nothing major bud wear water resistant boots 

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.
