Walk Description:


To the Huff Duff!

This week our morning walk starts at Appleslade then follows the secret footpath with its fabulously useless stiles (again!!) down a very quiet track past some tucked away cottages before crossing the pretty Dockens Water.

Climbing up to the top of Ibsley Common, the fantastic views in all directions take in the wide-ranging vistas of the New Forest.

After exploring the Huff Duff and the Ginger Tom's lair, we cross through the plantation behind Newlands farm which should be in full bloom with its rhododendrons before returning via Rockford Common.

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 walking at a good 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 contact Janet if you need more information as to whether this walk is for you.


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 bringing Fido.
