Accessible trails and Tramper hire

Getting outside into nature is vital to our health and happiness but this simple pleasure, that most of us take for granted, is not possible for everyone.

We all recognise the value of getting out for walks with the family, quality time with friends, fresh sea air and spectacular views so we've been working hard to create accessible trails around Morecambe Bay for you to enjoy whatever your level of ability.

Whether you are elderly, struggle with disability or illness, or perhaps you walk with children in pushchairs, you can find the route that suits by taking note of the route grade descriptions below.

Accessible trail grade descriptions

Easy

Suitable for manual wheelchairs and pushchairs, as well as powerchairs and scooters. Routes are predominantly flat with largely smooth, bound or stable surfaces. There is usually a good level of supporting facilities nearby or within a short distance.

Moderate

Best suited to assisted and powered wheelchair users, all-terrain type buggies and off-road powered mobility scooters. Routes may be on stony or soft, uneven ground with cambers and climbs, but with gradients of less that 1 in 10 unless on tarmac. Supporting facilities may not be available on route or very nearby.

Hard

Only suitable for robust off-road powered mobility scooters. Routes may involve considerable height gain some distance from roads on rough tracks with loose surfaces, significant cambers and climbs and gradients up to 1 in 5. Supporting facilities are unlikely to be available on route or nearby.
