We'd like to take our 3 & 5 yo cycling in the New Forest. Looking at the map, it's difficult to know where the best route to try out first would be. We're looking for a short route that's as flat as possible, with parking by the cycle route. Thank you for your help!
The old disused railway line, Brockenhurst to Burley is straight and flat. There are various accessible parts, the road was built over some of it. If you're Brock end, then there are car parks near Longslade Bottom where you can park up and get up onto the path, check an OS map for easiest ones. If you're Burley end, there is a carpark at the end on the Burley/Bransgore road and you can cycle as far along as you like, it crosses the quiet road by the weird wooden house and ends up by the Tea Rooms at Holmesley when they're up for cycling a bit further.
