Lyndhurst walks

Check out these great walks near Lyndhurst, close to the centre of the New Forest. All can be started from the village centre, but they also pass close to Forestry Commission or other car parks that provide alternative, convenient mid-way start points.

All also pass through magnificent landscapes to places where wildlife is likely to be encountered and where New Forest history can really be appreciated.

Some are relatively short, whilst most of the others can be walked at a gentle pace without too much exertion. And there are no really steep gradients, and no stiles to climb over. Just select the walks that match the time you have available and the distance you want to cover.
