About this walk
This walk is situated just off the A326 bypass that runs through Marchwood and down to Fawley.
The turning off for the walk is on the roundabout after the Tesco's exit (if you are coming from Southampton.)
This is a popular walk with dog walkers, and has some beautiful views across the forest. When you start out from the car park and head right, you will follow a path that leads up to the top of a ridge which lets you look out for quite a distance. There are forest areas and a bridge that passes over a large puddle/small lake (depending on which way you view it!)
The dogs all seem to love jumping in there, although it is very swampy on the outskirts of the water. There is a steep hill leading down to the water, and the majority of the walk is pathed. As with all New Forest walks, picking up after your dog is encouraged, especially along pathways.

8 years agoWe really enjoy Dibden Inclosure as it's really straight forward but still full of wonderful sniffs. And the odd squirrel.
8 years agoAbsolutely love this place, easy to get around and hundreds of little offtrails to discover. The boys love a walk around here and some good sniffs
8 years agoBrilliant Walk, and even after the all the recent rains the mud is still not too bad. I've included a link to the location travel directions (via Google Maps) and to my Garmin Adventure for the short loop we walked on my blog for anyone that wants a little guiding getting too and around the spot.
