Cadman's Pool Walk Description

The Cadman’s Pool Walk mirrors walking through pages of a storybook, where the tipsy trees, groves of forest, and streams tell a captivating tale. To put it simply: this walk will appeal to kids, parents, couples, groups of friends, and dogs! If you’re seeking a shorter adventure that’s on the easier side, the Cadman’s Pool Walk in the New Forest makes for a fantastic choice. Before you go, download a GPS to ensure you stay on the right track!

Setting out from the car park, you’ll go toward the forest, walking away from Cadman’s Pool. Continue walking through the trees, followed by an open meadow section, until you reach the edge of the meadow. Here, you’ll arrive at a Y- junction. Keep right to make your way around the loop, revelling in the concoction of views as you do. When you get back to the same Y-junction, follow the same path back to the car park that you came in on.
