Puddletown Forest Grid ref SY 746 930
Puddletown Forest is an attractive, large and varied woodland with options for short and long circular walks along its network of public footpaths and bridleways, with walking links through to Hardy's Cottage and Thorncombe Wood.
The Forest has many different types of trees, heathland areas and some lovely extensive views across the countryside, to view more of what it has to offer you can check out the 'Puddletown Forest' photo album on Dorset Dogs Facebook page.
Parking areas are available along the road (White Hill Road) through the woodland, with access from Puddletown or the A35. There are bus stops at Troy Town and at Puddletown and it is then necessary to walk along the country road for some distance before reaching the woodland paths, see bus stop map for more information.
