Favourite Areas
The best starting point to explore this area of the Forest is from the Highland Water Forestry Commission car park.

Situated at Grid Ref:  SU 24661 08278, it is next to an unnamed road that runs between Bolderwood to the west and the A35 to the east.

You will find a mixture of coniferous and deciduous trees in this ancient woodland, with the Highland Water stream meandering throughout the Inclosure.

This is not an official circular walk to be followed, rather one created by myself for purposes of taking photographs of the area.  There are many footpaths to wander along including an off road cycle route, so it's possible to design your own routes to explore.

This set of photos were taken on Good Friday, 25 March 2016, on a beautiful warm, sunny and dry morning.

The first few photos are along the grassy path from the car park, leading to the cycle path.
You can just see the cycle path through the trees.
Coming to the end of the grassy path that intersects with the cycle path, where I'll be turning left.
View back up along the grassy path I came down, which is a gradual gradient.
At the bottom of the grassy path I turned left onto the cycle path, intending to go around the Inclosure in a clockwise direction today.
Two black New Forest ponies are basking in the sunshine amongst the ferns. One is standing and the other one is laid down.
Alongside the ponies now.
Moving carefully around them for another angle to photograph them, the pony that was sleeping has become aware of me but is not concerned.
View further around the track looking back at the ponies. The one previously sleeping is laying down again.
