Walk Route Description

This is another video in my series of New Forest Walks with my Whippet, Logan. In this episode, I explore the area around the Rhinefield Walk to the West of Brockenhurst. The 5 mile route takes us through woodland, over open heathland as well as a New Forest Lawn with some fantastic scenery. My ramble takes me through the Alderidgehill, Clumber & Ferny Knapp Inclosures - crossing the Over Water on two occasions. I get to see the historic Rhinefield House (now a Hotel) and finish up exploring the site of a disused Rifle Range.
