We love the diversity of our iFootpath customers, with people from all walks of life (excuse the pun!). We know that different people want different things in their ideal walk and that is why we create such a broad range of walks, from half a mile to 15 miles and from climbing a mountain to strolling around a park.
We know that there are some customers who have key requirements in the accessibility of walking routes. Our thanks go to all the customers that have been in touch over the years, telling your personal stories and helping us to understand the diversity of needs out there. It might be post-surgery or walking with young children, a physical disability or walking with large dogs, taking a pushchair or being in a wheelchair. For any of those reasons, people may wish to avoid tricky obstacles like stiles or steep hills. To try to help, we have trawled through the iFootpath walking guides and tagged those walks that are easier access. There are 125 of these easier access walks just waiting to be discovered, and we will continue to add more over time.
All these walks are stile-free and have no steep gradients. Of course, you will have your own individual requirements so make sure you read the walk introduction to learn about the barriers that you will face. Many of the walks are suitable for rugged pushchairs or disability buggies, but some do include softer surfaces, steps, kissing gates or livestock. You will need to assess which of the walks suit your own circumstances, but we hope it will give those walkers with specific requirements a good place to start.
To find these Easier Access walks, simply go to the Find Walks > Browse Walks page of the iFootpath website and select Easier Access Walks from the Collections drop-down box…
