Forests for everyone
Breathing in fresh air, surrounding yourself with stunning natural beauty and keeping an eye out for your favourite wildlife can be a great way to recharge your batteries. Whether you use a wheelchair, push a buggy, or even if you thought your exploring days were behind you, we think our forests will have a trail for you.

Our all-abilities trails are wide, generally have a uniform surface, and are marked with clear, easy to follow signage. They can usually be found at destinations with accessible facilities such as toilets, parking spaces and visitor centres.
We have our own trail-grading system to describe the terrain, conditions and features of each trail. While we are confident that our all-abilities trails will be comfortably accessible to everyone, you may find that some of our easy, moderate or strenuous trails are also manageable — check the terrain description before you go.
If you have any questions about accessibility at our destinations, our colleagues at the local office will be happy to help.
You can search for your nearest easy-access trail with our Find a Forest tool. Choose an area or town, click on Filter by activity and then select All-abilities trails. To save yourself a little time, you can click the buttons below.
