What does Easier Access in the Brecon Beacons mean?

A few years ago the Brecon Beacons National Park Authority started working with local disability groups to find ways to help disabled people get out into the countryside.

As a result, the Authority made improvements such as replacing step-over stiles and steps with gates and ramps and upgrading surfaces. We started printing a guide to tell people where the improvements were.

The group soon realised that it wasn’t just disabled people that were benefitting from these changes. We kept hearing stories of lots of other people using the routes. Parents with young children in pushchairs, people who didn’t or couldn’t walk very far and people who just wanted a nice easy walk in the Brecon Beacons all found our suggestions useful.

So we renamed our guide the Easier Access Guide. You can explore all our Easier Access route by clicking on the links to the left of this page.

Another way to enjoy the less accessible areas of the park is by hiring an electric all terrain 'Boma 7' Wheelchair. Which can allow people with limited mobility the freedom to join friends and family on walks across Brecon Beacons National Park, with out the worry of accessibility.
