Walking in the New Forest
Wild ponies and cattle, together with the diverse landscape, draw many people to the New Forest for walking.
There are a number of walks to take in the New Forest. Many of the routes are clearly marked and there are places of interest to visit along the way.
Leaflets on walking are available from the New Forest Visitor Information Centre.
Also available from the Visitor Information Centre are New Forest Food Trail leaflets. Food Trails can be completed on foot or by bike, allowing you to experience the vast landscapes that the national park has to offer and plenty of opportunities to enjoy some delicious local produce on route.
