From the main car park, walk your bikes into the High Street and turn left, up to the top (past The Crown Manor House Hotel), here you will join two way traffic and be able to start your cycle ride. Head straight on until you come to the Swan Inn where you turn right for Emerydown. Keep on this road until the New Forest Inn, then bear left (signed to Bolderwood) eventually Millyford Bridge car park (SU 10826) will be on your right where you will pick up the off road cycle network (post 150).

At post 101 turn right, this will take you past Acres Down car park and at post 94 carry along the road to Minstead, where you can enjoy refreshments at the Trusty Servant. Did you know that Sir Arthur Conan-Doyle is buried in the graveyard here?

Retrace your route back to post 101 where you should turn right to post 103 and then turn left to Bolderwood car park (SU 10924). Here you can have a well earned picnic and take in the views. There are several way-marked walks here including the Deer Watch trail. Deer are fed everyday from April - September between 12pm and 3pm (when a ranger is free).

Now head north past the Canadian War Memorial, under the A31, then follow the off road track (post 58) to posts 61 and 63 when you reach the end of the track turn right and continue past the Red Shoot Inn and Appleslade car park (SU 11018), the road then becomes Highwood Lane.

Tturn left into Cowpitts Lane where you will reach the beauty spot of Linford car park (SU 10818). Continuing on (turning right), you pass post 71 following the track to the underpass. Go under the A31 again towards the village of Burley. Burley is the place to sample local New Forest Cider and New Forest Fudge from this typical New Forest Village.

Take Chapel Lane out of Burley village and pick up the off road track (post 112) back up to Bolderwood passing post numbers 110, 109, 107 ending at 104 where you can follow your tracks back to Millyford Bridge and Emerydown back into Lyndhurst for a very well deserved cup of tea at one of the many tearooms in the High Street.
