Walks difficulty

How easy is this walk?
Our walks are graded for difficulty as follows:

  • Easy – walks for everyone, including people with conventional wheelchairs and pushchairs, using easy access paths.
  • Leisurely – walks for reasonably fit people with at least a little walking experience.
  • Moderate – walks for people with a good level of fitness. May include some steep paths.
  • Strenuous – walks for experienced walkers with an above average fitness level.
  • Technical – walks for experienced and very fit walkers with additional technical skills.

Important additional advice
Walk gradings are provided as a general guide only. If you have any doubt about your fitness for a particular walk please contact your doctor.
Take into account the distance of the walk, regional differences in terrain and the possibility of bad weather, which can make a walk more difficult than planned.
If you’re unsure of your fitness level, try a short and easy walk first – it’s much better to find a walk a little too slow and easy than to make yourself miserable and exhausted.
