New Forest - Cycle routes and walking trail closures

Cycle routes and walking trail closures

Updated 11th February 2019

Cycle route closures

The cycle network, between posts 63 and 48 in Roe inclosure, is closed temporarily due to fallen trees that cannot be made safe until 13 February. If you’re taking the route to Ringwood, please use the Linford route instead and those who wish to go to or from the Redshoot should use the Milkham route as an alternative.

Part of the New Copse cycle track from post 308 to 305 is closed, please use an alternative route.

Please be aware heavy Machinery will be using the cycle route from post number 310 to 308 and down to the railway bridge from Monday 21st January until the end of March. This is for essential railway repairs.

For your own safety, and that of the contractors, please obey all warning signage.


Walking trail closures

Old railway line - Route Markers - 195-217 (between Setthorns campsite, Sway and Latchmoor, Brockenhurst).

This bridge is now closed to all traffic, including by foot, horse and bicycles due to safety concerns. Please follow the Green diversion signs. Cyclists are advised to dismount and walk down the decline. Please note this leads onto a shared track which pedestrians may be walking.

The bridge will be replaced soon. Sorry for any inconvenience caused by the closure and diversion.
