A Dog Walk in the Woods on Buttersteep Hill in AscotHooves and I went for a dog walk in the woods on Buttersteep Hill in Ascot in February.  It is a wonderfully wild and natural area that forms part of Swinley Forest, in Berkshire.  It is perfect dog-walking territory:  you are likely to see other dog walkers, the occasional runner, and if you are lucky you might see one of the Alaskan Malamute dog sled trials, which are held a couple of times a year in this section of the wood.

The area is large enough for a really good, long dog walk, and you can meander in down any number of the wide trails, creating a different circular route each time you visit.

There is no car park, but you can leave your car on Woodlands Ride, Ascot, close to the entrance gate. (map)  There is a bin here for dog waste. (streetview)

There is not much to say about this area except it is perfect for dogs, perfect for walking, and perfect for clearing A Dog Walk in the Woods on Buttersteep Hill in Ascotthe mind…and we think it’s beautiful.  It’s a real oasis.
