Visit www.nationaltrail.co.uk/southwestcoastpath for easy-access coastal walks along fairly flat paths that are at least 2’6” wide, have a minimal cross camber, and no steps or stiles. So far twelve easy-access walks have been added covering all areas of the Coast Path and more will be added in future.
A detailed map and description of each one with photographs illustrating the nature of the walk can be printed from the website. Variations in gradients, camber and path surface, as well as the width of any gates are all noted so that people can make their own minds up about whether the walk is suitable for them.
The walk descriptions have been developed by the South West Coast Path Team, led by Ros Love who said ‘I am delighted that we have been able to provide this information for those people who may not find it easy to use all parts of the Coast Path. I hope that the easy-access walks will help and encourage many more people to discover the stunning coastline of the south west. These are Coast Path walks that people of all abilities can enjoy together.’
The easy-access walks are an addition to the existing online library of over 50 Coast Path walks of varying length and difficulty in all parts of the region. Something for everyone – the South West Coast Path National Trail.
