A pleasant 4.1 mile circular walk to the South of Dockenfield.  Free, roadside parking can be found in Dockenfield itself with the route starting next to a small playing field.

The route covers a mixture of terrain inclduing feidls, woodland, a stream with a ford (and a bridge) as well as a short section of quiet country back-road.

It is mildly hilly but nothing too strenuous.

A short but interesting 2.7 mile walk around Sulham Wood. A good steep climb is followed by fields on the plateau before walking through some quite strange woodland (not sure I'd want to wild camp here..) before heading back on the eastern flanks of the hill. Geocaching route, but worth taking the dogs round or as a post Sunday lunch amble.

A short walk around and into the Devils Punch Bowl on Hindhead Common. There a numerous walks here of varying length and the whole area is well worth an explore.

This walk begins at the National Trust car park where there's a tea room and toilets if required. The old footpath used to run along the top of the hill above the busy A3 but that all changed in 2011 when the HIndhead Tunnel was opened and the old road ripped up and returned to nature.

A hilly 5.6 mile walk to the South of Winchester. It may look quite close to the M3 motorway but feels far removed.

We parked by the church and walked the loop anti clockwise. There are geocaches on this route.

A welcome pint can be had in the Dolphin Pub afterwards

A great 4.5 mile circular walk, on the flat, around Keyhaven Marshes and nature reserve.  

Parkign in the pay & display car park, the footpath starts straight away and leads of following a small tributary.  It soon turns to a well packed gravel track that circles behind the marshes and inland, passing the entrance to the local waste centre as well as a campsite before eventually popping out in Lower Pennington and The Chequers Inn, a nice 16th Century village pub and restauarant.

A good 4.6 mile circular walk over varied terrain.  We parked on the main track into Shitterton.  From ther ethe footpath starts around 100 yeards away.

Shitterton was name over 1,00 years ago and literally means 'farmstead on the stream used as an open sewer'.  Luckily, it isn't used for that purpose nowadays.

The walk climbs up a gorse lines path to Black Hill adn form there, follows the ridge west to Piddle Wood (we really couldn't make this up), on the Jubilee trail.

A 5 mile circular walk from Upper Froyle, taking in the former Lord Mayor Treloar College (now looking like being developed).

The route crosses the busy A31 twice so care should be taken with children or dogs. It also crosses the railway.

The nearby Hen and Chicken Pub on the A31 has some good beers on offer and a carvery every day (correct 2014).

A slightly wandering 3 mile circular walk.  We intended to follow the Lulworth range walks route but found it was closed (a good reason to always double check the range times) and, as such, we had to detour and head westwards towards Durlde Door beofre calling it a day as we battled a surprising amount of visitors for such an early weekend in the season.

A great walk for the views but I'd recommend doing it mid-week or out of season.

A well used 6.7 mile cliff walk with endless return routes amongst the fields.  Parking can be found in a large open car park at the western end of Swanage town.  From there it's a short walk to Peveril Point and the coast guard lookout.  The path turns uphill and follows a well worn route towards Durlston Head.

Depending on the state of the cliff, there may be diversions around any cliff falls so follow the signs rather than the GPX route.

A pleasant 6 mile circular walk from Clanfield around to the outskirts of Hambledon and Catherington.

The walk is mostly field boundaries and shady bridleways.

We parked in a lay-by on Hambledon Road but there are many places to choose form.
