Help connect Ferndown

Many Slow Ways have several route options. Some will be better than others, or good for different reasons.

Our goal is for each Slow Way to have at least one route that is verified and surveyed. To be verified – and get its snail badge – a route needs at least three positive reviews.

Give a hike and help get a for every one of Ferndown’s Slow Ways.

First bit, exiting Ringwood, is alongside the A31 trunk road, not so good, but walkers quickly move onto the Castleman Trail, an old railway line and the 4m walk to West Moors is a lovely tree-lined wide flat trail that can be done by disabled people....

I Walked this from Wimborne to Ferndown and was very pleasantly surprised by how much I could cover without encountering traffic. A large part was along the River Stour which was teeming with early spring activity and on Ferndown Common saw my first Male sand lizard. I am local and loved this walked and will be doing it again soon....
