Bolton's Bench is known as 'the New Forest's gateway' and has lots of excellent path ways, with varied natural terrain. On this walk, you'll see picturesque views across heathland and grassland and lots of wildlife, including free roaming ponies and cattle. There is lots of interesting history to be seen on this walk, including the Lyndhurst War Memorial, which is where the walk starts and ends. 

Please note, a section of this walk is along grassland, so please wear suitable shoe-wear during wet weather. 

This walk is just a few minutes walk directly into Lyndhurst high street, so enjoy a warming cup of tea from a local tearoom or a refreshing drink from a local pub after your walk! 

Be Forest Friendly: Please don't touch or feed any free-roaming animals. Enjoy our wildlife from a distance!
