How Long are the Walks and How do I Know Which are Suitable for me?
Walks often have frequent pauses to admire the beauty of our natural environment. Some may stop for a refreshment break during the walk whilst others wait until the end of their walk to enjoy a well deserved cuppa and a chat.
Your walk level guide to exploring your countryside:
- Grade 1 = Short Walk up to 30 minutes. Flat paths or gentle slopes. Mainly firm surfaces. No steps or stiles. Suitable for wheelchairs and pushchairs, and for those with little or no experience of exercise or walking
- Grade 2 = Medium Walk 30 - 60 minutes. These walks may include moderate steps, stiles or slopes and uneven surfaces. Ideal for those needing to increase their activity levels
- Grade 3 = Long Walk 45 - 90 minutes for those looking for more challenging walks and to increase activity levels. These routes will be on uneven surfaces and include stiles, steps & steeper inclines
- Progression Walks of 90 minutes + duration:
Footpaths, tracks and pavements, possibly uneven terrain and a few moderate-steep gradients. May include the use of stiles or steps. Can possibly be wet/muddy underfoot depending on weather.
