The information you will find here is intended to help you plan a day out in the Peak District, whether you are less active, disabled or have young children.
Please note: Route descriptions are not graded as they may vary with weather conditions. Gradients are given where they may be helpful.
'Easy going trail' means a fairly level route with few steep sections or other obstructions; it may be wheelchair accessible.
Many sites are remote and unsupervised and car thieves may operate. Please take all valuables when you leave your car and lock other belongings out of sight.
Some disabled toilets require RADAR keys.
A number of guided walks with rangers take place each year which are suitable for pushchairs and wheelchair users. Contact the Peak District National Park Authority Ranger Service on 01629 816290 or search for guided walks.
Access Peak is a series of ten short films showing how wheelchair users and people with other mobility problems can enjoy the Peak District. John Harris, a former paralympian, presents the films using his own wheelchair, hand-cranked bikes, a powered wheelchair and an abseil rope to experience the national park.
A DVD has been produced and is available to buy from our visitor centres. The videos can also be seen online.
