The New Forest Hike
Join us for a a hike through England's 12th National Park: The New Forest.
The New Forest was created by William the Conqueror as a hunting forest by razing many lowly villages. The Forest covers Protected content miles, of which about a third is broadleaf woodland, a third heath and grassland (including wetlands) and the rest settlements or “inclosures". The New Forest was made the twelfth national park in England and Wales in Protected content . Rare species of wildlife thrive in the Forest because these vast areas of lowland heath and marsh are hardly found elsewhere.
Distance: Around Protected content
Walk: Brockenhurst Circular
Time: 5 to 6 hours

This is an idyllic walk taking us through the heart of the New Forest, along the way we'll see a plethora of woodlands, many of the wild new forest ponies will also be seen across the landscape and some quite near us, and countryside scenery that illustrates the unique attributes of the New Forest.
