Easy Going Trails

We have 18 easy to follow trails, each of which gets you close to nature in the very heart of Suffolk's countryside. Each trail is easy to follow on generally level ground. They range from just 1/3 mile to 8 miles. Explore magical Cavenham Heath, see rare birds at Lackford Lakes, visit Britain's first village at West Stow Country Park, enjoy the beautiful grounds at Thornham Walks, or marvel at the views from Dunwich Heath.

Trails have been carefully assessed by a team of disabled volunteers and are divided into Easy Access Trails, which are suitable for all, and Easy Going Trails, which follow slightly rougher ground and are a bit more challenging. Each walk starts at a car park, most have accessible toilet facilities and many have cafes or tea rooms. A few are really wild destinations with no facilities, such as Cavenham Heath, although facilities are close by.
