Easy Access Walks
Leave the tarmac behind
While much of the Coast Path is quite strenuous there are many sections that are much gentler, and are suitable for people with mobility problems, pushchairs, wheelchairs and mobility scooters.
Through our Walk finder tool you can select easy access walks which all have a worthwhile length along fairly flat paths that are at least 850mm (2'6") wide, have a minimal cross camber, and no steps or stiles. You'll can also find these split into areas by expanding the navigation menu on the right.
To judge whether a particular walk is suitable, each easy going walk has a 'Terrain' description with a link to more information about the accessibility of the route. Clicking on this will bring up a fresh page with a more detailed map and photos showing the path gradients, surfaces and any gates.
Through the Countryside Mobility project, at an increasing number of locations (currently over 30 sites in the South West) you can also hire a ‘Tramper’ rugged mobility scooter, that will go smoothly and comfortable across uneven paths.
