This is the best place to experience the majestic Douglas firs and redwoods of the Rhinefield Ornamental Drive.
You will find some of the tallest and oldest Douglas fir trees in Britain to wonder at as you stroll along the Tall Trees Trail.

Have a go at guessing just how tall these famous trees of the New Forest really are from this shady spot. Walk the Tall Trees Trail, take a picnic and wonder at the majesty of two enormous redwoods visible from the path.

Stroll around the Sensory Trail and really experience trees from around the world in the Blackwater Arboretum.
