Walk Description:

SATURDAY STRIDER FROM ABBOTSWELL AT FROGHAM!

What is that arrow for?!

One of the most fabulous views in the New Forest greets us as we gather at Abbotswell car park, the view revealing our route for today.

The livestock at Ogdens, babbling Latchmore brook and atmospheric Alderhill Inclosure are the start and middle of the walk today.

Emerging on to Ashley walk gives us an opportunity to get up a bit of speed before pausing to explore the strange arrow at the side of the track!

Making our way back to the well at Abbotswell, the Donkey pub (real name the Foresters!) may be calling for a tipple before heading home!

Our Saturday Strider Walks are of a longer duration than those during the week and can be either in the morning or afternoon, or sometimes all day and are for all walkers, Nordic and non-Nordic!

These walks are for those who are confident with Nordic Walking at a pace of 2.5+ miles per hour and can tackle hills without too much trouble.

If you are not a Nordic Walker then please do come along and join us (you will still need to register and book as usual).

The walks are not suitable for those starting out on their fitness journey or who require regular breaks. 

Please bring a drink and a snack in a bumbag or backpack (not a shoulder bag) as we will stop half way for a breather while taking in the views.

Please Note:

There are a couple of gates but no stiles.  There is a very real possibility of encountering New Forest grazing livestock such as ponies, cows and donkeys and very likely deer. Parts of the route follow paths where seasonal springs can suddenly appear after rain even in the summer so please wear appropriate footwear.  Dogs are welcome but please make sure you are confident and safe with dogs on a lead when using poles and around livestock. There are long stretches where dogs must be on a lead, even right in the forest. Please make sure you have filled out a dog disclaimer form from Janet before bring Fido.
