About the event
Celebrate the New Forest's Walking and Cycling Festival by learning to navigate so you can get out walking and cycling more in the future!
What's it all about?
Navigation is the key to many outdoor adventures and a fantastic skill to help you feel confident independently outdoors. This event will introduce the basic skills of navigation using a map, building them up progressively to give you a navigation 'toolkit' to take away for future adventures. This is perfect for those new to navigating or who want to build their confidence. There are no silly questions or limits on repeating information - you just need to come and have a go! We will also chat about the things we see along the way including wildlife and history.
What do I need to know?
You don't need to be super fit or speedy but you should be able to walk at least 6km/4miles, be comfortable moving over uneven footpaths, up a couple of little hills and over a stile or two. Wear supportive, grippy footwear, bring layers, lunch and drink - check out the Guides section for a kit list. Maps will be provided but if you have your own you are welcome to bring it.
Car sharing is encouraged to consider the environment and local communities. Do not park on grass verges.
Follow the New Forest Code during your visit.
