Some walks in our programme are more suitable than others for people who find walking uphill challenging. These walks tend to use flatter paths with good surfaces and are therefore suitable for anyone pushing a buggy or wheelchair. Likewise they are OK for people who depend upon mobility scooters or electric wheelchairs to get about. 

The following walks venues are either wheels-friendly or have short walks that are suitable for those who need a flat(ish) walk [perfectly flat in Sheffield isn't really an option] and for buggies, wheelchairs and scooters. Because these walks tend to be on paths with good surfaces they are also suitable for the visually impaired.

Those walks with sufficient volunteer leaders generally offer a shorter alternative to their main walk starting at the same time and from the same place as the main walk.  However, the short walk on some walks, for example Grenoside, Stocksbridge, Totley and Ecclesall Woods Discovery Centre, is not suitable for wheels because the routes taken are often too rough.
