A nice 5.5 mile circular walk through the New Forest countryside in Hampshire. This route will take you through wide open heathland, forest trails, ancient woods and traditional farmland. There is also a dog-friendly pub and brewery towards the end of the walk. There are no stiles, but you will need to negotiate a couple of gates. Most of this walk is good for off-lead dog walking, however a couple of sections are on quiet roads and there are also many wild ponies and donkeys en route. You can shorten the route if you wish - the optional short-cut is described within the walk sections. Allow 2.5 hours.

The walk starts and finishes from the High Corner Forestry Commission car park near Linwood. Follow directions for High Corner Inn, BH24 3QY. Before getting to the inn, there will be a car park on the left signposted by the Forestry Commission as High Corner Car Park. The car park is free of charge. (Use the live GPS map to locate this exact starting car park). Alternatively, there are several other car parks in the area, which are also suitable parking places.

Start point: 50.8926 lat, -1.7177 long
End point: 50.8997 lat, -1.7236 long

Leave the car park back onto the access lane and turn left along this. As the lane bends left (after just 70 metres), go ahead across the heathland (use the App's GPS-map to guide you) to reach a T-junction with a heathland path. Turn right and follow this path. The path later converges with the road, but soon swings leftwards away from the road again. Continue on the path and, at the crossroads near Broomy Lodge, go straight on. Keep following the path until you are in woodland. At a crossroads, turn left and keep following the trail through the ancient woods. You will come across two gates which you will have to go through and at every fork continue on the right-hand path. When you get to Waypoint 1 (a T-junction with the access lane) you can either go left to take a short-cut back to the car park, or for the full route turn right.

Start point: 50.8997 lat, -1.7236 long
End point: 50.8836 lat, -1.7348 long

Keep following the access lane through all the farmland. At this point the road is in use so it is sensible to have dogs on the lead. There are a couple of fords to pass and eventually, after going past some farms, you will come to The Red Shoot Inn dog-friendly pub.

Pub to End

Start point: 50.8836 lat, -1.7348 long
End point: 50.8927 lat, -1.7178 long

From the pub, continue just a short distance to reach a T-junction. Turn left and there is now just a 20 minute road walk back to the car park. (Once again, the road is in use so dogs will need to be on leads. It is however a reasonably quiet road). After passing the entrance track for Higher Farm on your left (and just before the Broomy Walk car park entrance on your right), fork left to join the path through the heathland. This will lead you back to the car park where the walk began.

Lovely walk. The car park is a little way from where your sat nav will take you if you just rely on the postcode. Best way to find start position is to search for the name of car park on google map before you are due to arrive and then use the gps map on this app to get you there as the mobile phone signal is unreliable at the car park area. The walk itself is great. Nice mix of open heathland, ancient woods, farm roads and there’s a decent pub on route. Would do walk again and do recommend it.

Postcode???

ADMIN RESPONSE: The nearest post code is already clearly stated in the introduction - you just need to read it. This paragraph also explains that this post code is for a nearby inn (as the car park does not have a post code - this is often the case for rural car parks) and so gives advice on how to find the exact location once the post code has directed you to the locality.
