Wimpole's Multi User Trail

Project
A family cycling through a wood on an Autumn day

We're passionate about getting people outdoors and closer to nature. Our aim is to make access to the parkland as easy as possible and make people feel comfortable about heading off into the countryside.

What's multi-use?

The trail will be multi-use, intended for walkers, runners, cyclists and adapted wheelchair users. They’re all aimed at people who aren’t regularly taking part in activity, great for families looking for an easy, safe route that can get them active and enjoying time outside together.

Construction commences

This month, October 2019, our multi-use trail has started to be constructed, supported by Sport England, this accessible route will be open to all abilities, including adapted wheelchair users, all year round, whatever the weather, this trail will take you our into the countryside.

Opening in 2020

Wimpole's brand new multi use trail, will provide a circular route around the estate giving the opportunity for more of you to go out into woodland, parkland and farmland.

The constuction will take around six months with the official opening in June 2020.  In the meantime please keep off the new surface whilst we are building it and follow diversion signs where necessary, the trail will need time to bed in and we'll let you know nearer the time when it can be used.

The route at Wimpole offers a new safe off-road route through the beautiful historic parkland, woodland and farmland. It will improve existing paths and open up new areas of the estate.

Wimpole is one of ten national trust properties chosen to build new cycle paths to encourage visitors to enjoy different activities. The all-weather surface also means more people can explore the estate whatever the season.
