There are a lot of boardwalks in the Elvetham Heath local nature reserve which keep you out of any wet areas.
Elvetham Heath Nature Reserve
The nature reserve came into existence as part of the agreement to allow the significant development of housing in the immediate area between 2001-2008.
The reserve was officially opened to the public in October 2002 and is run by Hart Council's Countryside Service. It is about 19.5 hectares in area with a mixture of habitats - wet woodlands, open wet area and restored heathland. In July 2003 the site was declared a 'Local Nature Reserve'.

The heathland is considered to be a rare habitat and is an important place for some of Britain's endangered wildlife. Foxes, deer and several species of bat are found in the reserve. Reptiles and amphibians such as common lizards, frogs, toads, smooth newts and grass snakes are to be found. A variety of butterfly species have been recorded along with 16 species of dragonfly and damselfly.
During the summer months rare breed cattle graze within the reserve, hence the substantial fencing.
