Trail description

Starting from Bolderwood car park this is a longer route which explores a range of woodland types both ancient and modern. Once past the Radnor StFamily on a waymarked trail at Bolderwood. New Forestone the trail passes through sweet chestnut, oak and beech dating from 1860.

It then skirts the fenced boundary of Mark Ash Wood, an Ancient and Ornamental Woodland, where you can see pollarded beech trees. Bratley Water, flowing south to join the Blackwater, a tributary of the Lymington River, is an ideal spot to rest and have your picnic.

Here you will find stands of Norway spruce planted in 1966 which are thriving in the moist valley bottom.

The trail finally leads you past the deer viewing platform where you can often see a herd of fallow deer.

The path is a moderately smooth gravelled surface with two short but fairly steep slopes and frequent resting places.

The trail is accessed via a gate which has a low catch
