Promoted as an off-road cycle and horse-riding route, the Ox Drove was once a drove route for cattle. The trail passes through the heart of rural Hampshire across beautiful rolling hills, through woodlands and past small farms.

    Rode this end of October 2016. Really enjoyable, well considered route with varied scenery, lovely vistas. Never felt too taxing, the ups and downs are fairly gentle. We had enjoyed a dry spell running up to when we rode it so not sure how it holds up in wet conditions, but was in really good order when we rode it. Was a bit overgrown near Lone Farm but not unpassable.
