Most of the main trails are well surfaced and wheelchair friendly, but can get muddy in winter. 

 

There is a small play area adjacent to the car park, which may act as an incentive for younger children. There are also plenty of picnic tables to enjoy well-earnt, post-walk refreshments. 

 

Dogs can be exercised off-lead here (provided they are kept under control). Waste bins and toilet facilities can be found in the car park.
