Burley New Forest
Enjoy a series of nice footpaths through the Old and New Burley Inclosures in the New Forest. The village of Burley is a popular spot with a number of good options for walkers. You could start from the village but this circular route begins from the car park off Lyndhurst Road, just to the north east of Burley. From here you can pick up the trails heading east through the New Inclosure to Dames Slough Inclosure and Blackwater Bridge. The route returns through the Old Inclosure, passing Cockroad Hill on the way.
The route takes place on generally good quality paths with the chance of seeing deer and ponies on the way.
Just to the east of this route you can pick up the splendid Blackwater Arboretum Trail. The trail is lined with majestic Douglas fir trees which are among the tallest and oldest trees in Britain.
Also near Burley is the Knightwood Oak where you will find the largest oak tree in the forest.
The lovely Ober Water is located just a mile or so south east of the Old Inclosure. You can follow some nice waterside footpaths here.
