Aber Falls Path


Access for All Walks

If you’re looking for walks where accessibility is a key factor and perhaps distance is also an important consideration, then these accessible walks should address both. Whether you're looking for a long walk such as the Mawddach Trail or a short stroll along the Traeth Benar boardwalk, what these walks have in common is that they have been designed with accessibility in mind. These walks are relatively short and most have sections that are accessible to wheelchair users. They are also suitable for those who want to use pushchairs and are great leisure walks. The Mawddach Trail is also suitable for cyclists and is considered one of the best trails in Britain. Most of these accessible walks have facilities nearby including parking, picnic tables and toilets.
