SATURDAY STRIDER IN THE WOODS AND PLAINS!The New Forest at its best!
Such a variety of landcapes on this walk today, showing that the New Forest is not just about endless heathland!
Deciduous woodlands should be in full leaf cover by now giving a completely different look and atmosphere at Appleslade and Linford Inclosures as we pass through on our way to the plains behind Linford where we can stretch those legs a bit and practice our intervals and pace on this 7-miler.
We will also keep a watchful eye out for the orchids which may have started to show themselves but can only be seen in the lesser visited areas of the New Forest.
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 steady/moderate pace 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.
