At Explore Kent, we aim to provide detailed information about our routes to give you a clear idea of what to expect. Please be mindful that our stile free routes are located in the countryside and the path surfaces can be adversely affected by poor weather conditions. Certain routes may be better suited for wheelchairs with wider wheels, as they can handle the terrain more easily compared to other wheelchairs. We encourage you to read about the trails, and to assess them if you feel confident in completing them yourself.

A short 0.45 mile (0.7km) woodland walk. The path surface is compacted and reasonably smooth. There are climbs and descents for most of the route, and no rest areas.
Hamstreet Woods is part of a woodland that descended from a post-Ice Age forest and was one of the first National Nature Reserves designated in England.
It is still managed in a traditional way and is home to a variety of different habitats with an outstanding collection of birds and moths.
This route may contain rough uneven surfaces through the car park and throughout the route. This route would be more suited for pushchair and wheelchairs with wider wheels.
