Walking is a wonderful way to see the New Forest National Park close up. There are many possible walks to take you into the woods, by sea, over heath or by rivers and streams. Experience the colours of changing seasons and the diverse flora and fauna.
One of the special qualities of the National Park is the freedom to ramble across unenclosed land. From April to July there may be signs asking people to avoid certain areas to limit disturbance to rare breeding birds, such as snipe, curlew and redshank. These birds nest on the ground in wet areas.
