We explore the beautiful areas of the western New Forest, using our Nordic Poles to turn this Nordic Walk into a bit of a workout!
This is a Moderate walk using mainly Gears 2/3 using technique to cover more ground and hills.
This week we explore Hyde and Gorley Commons with the opportunity for those who wish to, to really push their gears on the flat common paths to gain speed, improve technique and generally turn a walk into a workout.
This walk is not suitable for those just starting on their fitness journey or who wish to walk at a more leisurely speed.
Please get in touch with Janet if you are unsure if this walk is for you.
This walk is mainly on gravel tracks with some grass and the possibility of a mud. We will have to walk down a couple of very quiet village roads between the two commons.
There are a couple of gentle hills, taking in heathland, woodland and paddocks with far-reaching fabulous views.
We are quite likely to meet ponies, cows, possibly donkeys and deer.
PLEASE NOTE:There are no gates or stiles but there is a very real possibility of encountering New Forest grazing livestock such as ponies, cows and donkeys. The very nature of the New Forest terrain means that springs pop up in unexpected places after heavy rain so please make sure you wear waterproof footwear (no wellies)! Dogs are welcome but there will be stretches where they must be on a lead so please make sure you are confident and safe with dogs on a lead when using poles and around livestock. Please make sure you have filled in a dog disclaimer form available from Janet before bringing your pooch.
