Miles without Stiles are walking routes for everyone. They can take you along lake shores and riversides, to tarns and through woods, to historic remains, and to fell summits with amazing views.
As well as not having any stiles to climb up and over, they are more accessible routes suitable for people with limited mobility. This includes wheelchair users, families with pushchairs, the visually impaired, and anyone who wants an easier walk with no scrambling, climbing or steep hills. Use our interactive map below to explore where the routes are, or choose from the menu on the left.
Distances shown are in kilometres for a return trip unless otherwise stated. Path conditions can change and be damaged, or eroded, by rain and bad weather. We do our best to carry out repairs quickly, but occasionally a route is closed, or diverted, for essential repairs. Check the individual route pages for up to date information on route conditions. Facilities such as toilets or bus timetables are also subject to change.
Our grading system: for 'all', 'many', or 'some', is based on gradients and surface conditions. The grades are a guide only, our aim is to give you information about the route and the terrain, so you can decide if its suitable for you.
