Walking routes

Walking is a wonderful way to experience the tranquillity of the New Forest National Park and see it up close.

There are many possible New Forest walks to take you into the woods, by sea, over heath or by rivers and streams, with the freedom to ramble across unfenced 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, which nest on the ground.

The best way to follow our New Forest National Park walking routes is by downloading our free app for iPhone and Android. The app contains 27 routes for you to try, with GPS navigation that shows you where you are on the route in real time as you walk. It works without mobile phone signal too, perfect for exploring the Forest.

Please be aware of the New Forest Code when walking in the National Park.
