A lovely circular walk starting from the High Corner Inn, a large family pub where all are welcome. The route is fairly level, taking you initially through heathland with plenty of New Forest ponies for you to enjoy as they wander 'free range'. Then you pass through the Forestry Commission controlled Hasley Inclosure where you are quite likely to spot some deer... if you are nice and quiet! Walking through more heathland with lovely views all around, you descend to an idyllic spot by the river before entering more woodland. Most of the walk is along firm gravel / sandy tracks but there are a couple of areas which are a little boggy. When I walked it in April, it was easy to pick my way around them.

A lovely walk but we did have some confusion at point 16 as there is no bridge and one just walks straight across the dried up river bed and up the hill ahead.

Yet another cracking short circular from the ever dependable Sylvia. Lots of contrast to enjoy and embrace with sprawling vistas, occasional deer and lots of ponies and cattle. A lovely afternoon stroll within very peaceful and tranquil surroundings. The very large High Corner Inn is a popular meeting place for walkers, but if you prefer a small and intimate place to enjoy a spot of grub and a pint, I would not recommend this very large family diner. Even after two very dry weeks, it was still a tad boggy in places, hence whatever the weather or season, a decent pair of boots is highly recommended. Many Thanks to Sylvia for yet another stunning compact gem.

We don't have a dog but we have a friend who visits and likes to join us on walks so that's why I've marked this as dog friendly - not a stile in sight. Just completed this walk on a lovely sunny December day and the forest was so pretty, some streams were still frozen but the wide open spaces and sunshine made for a lovely walk. Excellent directions as usual.

18.10.2009.Our first walk! No problems following directions. Dogs loved the boggy bits at the start but ended up cleaner by the end! A very pleasant walk for us and them.
