Winter walks in the New Forest

Rockford and Ibsley commons in winter

Escape to the wild open spaces of the New Forest this winter, for a really invigorating walking experience. We've got three very different downloadable trails for you to try, drawing you into some of the Forest's fascinating history, and magnificent ancient landscapes.

The Ibsley walk takes you back into its Second World War past. An early stroll across Hale Purlieu will reveal mist-covered valleys, and at Hightown look out for New Forest ponies on frosty lawns.
