Access The Suffolk Coast

The Suffolk Coast is packed with fantastic trails and footpaths just waiting to be explored, and the ‘Easy Going Trails’ pack means it’s now even easier to experience the area’s beauty and wildlife first hand. The ‘Easy Going Trails’ pack has been specially designed by Suffolk County Council and disability groups to encourage people with limited mobility to enjoy and explore the county.

The pack features 18 walks that take in the full depth and variety of Suffolk’s countryside, including its outstanding coastal landscape. All of the trails are easy to follow and vary from 1/3 mile to 8 miles in length.

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 cafés or tearooms. A few are really wild destinations with no facilities, such as Cavenham Heath, although facilities are close by.

The pack has been created in partnership between Suffolk County Council, Optua, Stepping Out in Suffolk Healthy Walks, the Access Group for Suffolk and Healthy Ambitions Suffolk. A copy of it can be downloaded at the Discover Suffolk website or by contacting any of the county’s tourist information centres.
