Description
Waypoints (7)

This walk takes you through the varied terrain of the New Forest. It starts from the parking lot near Bolton’s Bench. Along this path, you will pass through bogs, woodlands, and open tracts. Keep an eye open for birds along the path and for the livestock grazing along the forest. While the terrain is mostly flat, you will pass through a variation of ground, such as a road, gravel, a sandy path, and a wooded area. You will also pass through green pastures and see the wooden rails of a bridge. Once you approach the A35, remember to be safe when crossing the expressway. From here commences the track with heavy woods and then you will soon come on the conifers of the Busketts Lawn Inclosure. Once you pass through the Inclosure, you will then come up on a less clear path through the Yew Tree Hill woodland. However, the path is easy to follow. Follow the path until it opens up to a wider track and cross this to the golf course (previously the old racecourse). You will go through an underpass, pass by a cemetery, and this will lead you back to the start.

Well... despite having a gps, trying to follow the trail was very difficult as the first half was just through random woodland with no path. Extremely boggy / muddy but an adventure none the less. Would recommend for a walk, saw lots of wild horses and deer, not so great for trail running as I spent more time trying to work out where I was going.

A lovely walk. Easy to follow on GPS. Not much climbing and plenty of shade on a hot day.

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