The woodlands have a hard path which is fully accessible for wheelchair users. There is a lot of fallen branches off the path so lots of potential for shelter building or bug hunting. In dry summer weather there are also opportunities to take wheelchairs off the path to stand in beautiful glades of birches and pines. The back out into a lovely open grassland/meadow. Unfortunately the path crumbles before the meadow and so this area is not fully accessible.
