Dynamic versionMiles without stiles

We want everyone to enjoy the national park and that’s why we’re working with others to develop and promote our accessible routes to make it even easier to explore this amazing place.

Our Miles without Stiles routes are suitable for people of all fitness levels and those with limited mobility, including wheelchair users, families with pushchairs and scooters, and the visually impaired. Some of the routes may also be ideal for young children to cycle on.

Steps, uneven surfaces, stiles, steep slopes, and lack of information, can limit access so we’ll be providing maps, photographs and a grading system for our Miles without Stiles routes to show whether they are accessible for ‘all’, ‘many’ or ‘some’ based on surface conditions and gradients.

Our routes will showcase the best of the Peak District. They will provide access to amazing views, moorland expanses, intimate dales, dramatic geology, distinctive habitats, tranquil and undeveloped areas, and the history of the landscape. They will be for enjoyment, escape, exploration, challenge and adventure, for confidence and independence, for everyone.

The routes are coming soon so please keep on visiting this webpage to find out more or sign up to our Access and Rights of Way Newsletter for progress updates.
