There is a lot a of walking and it can be steep in some parts. It is unsuitable for pushchairs and wheelchairs. As it is a group walk and the rangers will be talking & sharing info we recommend that dogs do not attend as they can be very distracting. However, if you do bring your dog we ask that they are well behaved and kept on a lead at all times during the walk.
