Welcome to Phototrails

Phototrails is the home of a new and expanding database of trails in the UK and around the world.

Phototrails is here to help everyone discover and enjoy access to the countryside, tailored to their own needs and preferences. This help lovers of the countryside to find locations where they can enjoy the enormous benefits of recreation in the great outdoors.

Phototrails was developed by the Fieldfare Trust to provide you with more information, and therefore more choice, about where to spend your day out in the countryside. As a charity that actively promotes countryside access for people with disabilities, Fieldfare understands the importance of providing “pre-visit” information on trail features and site amenities, such as whether disabled parking and accessible toilets are available.

Each walk is described through a filmstrip and slideshow of photographs which let you see just what the walk is like. They include information on the surrounding environment, the walk distance and the features and highlights that you will find along the way. Hopefully,information on path gradients, widths and surfaces will also be provided by surveyors. Each trail is given an accessibility rating to help you decide whether a trail meets your needs and, but please let us know if any ratings don’t meet your expectation so we can help future users make informed choices about the other trails.

When navigating your way around our featured trails, please note that photos have been taken in the direction of travel and from the perspective of the photographer’s height. Do also take into consideration the weather and season when planning your visit, as the condition of countryside trails can deteriorate during the winter months.

You can search for walks near to where you live or, you can plan routes that you might do while visiting friends or taking a holiday.
