Phototrails was developed by the Fieldfare Trust to provide you with more information, and therefore more choice, about where to spend your day out in the countryside. As a charity that actively promotes countryside access for people with disabilities, Fieldfare understands the importance of providing “pre-visit” information on trail features and site amenities, such as whether disabled parking and accessible toilets are available.
Please let us know if any ratings don’t meet your expectation so we can help future users make informed choices about the other trails.
When navigating your way around our featured trails, please note that photos have been taken in the direction of travel and from the perspective of the photographer’s height. Do also take into consideration the weather and season when planning your visit, as the condition of countryside trails can deteriorate during the winter months.
You can search for walks near to where you live or, you can plan routes that you might do while visiting friends or taking a holiday.
