Miles without Stiles

Each of our strolls is graded using the ʻMiles Without Stilesʼ classification used across many UK National Parks. Each route is classified as ʻfor allʼ, ʻfor manyʼ or ʻfor someʼ, based on the steepness of the route and surface conditions.

The grades are a guide only. Our aim is to give you information about the route and the terrain, so you can decide if itʼs suitable for you. If you are unsure, maybe try an ʻAccess For Allʼ route first, before working up through the grades. Take a look at the video guides for each stroll to help prepare ahead.

Please be aware of your, and your equipment's, capabilities. If you use a battery-powered buggy please ensure the batteries are charged.
