This short walk takes you through the boggy Fulliford Passage on the edge of the New Forest. Starting in Ashurst, the walk heads through woodland and heath to Beaulieu Road station (on the same train line). This part of the New Forest is well known for bird watching. There are also pubs at either end. Children will love the muddy ground in this part of the forest, and there's also a good chance of spotting deer or the famous New Forest ponies.
