Kings Wood lies in the heart of Kent Downs Area of Natural Beauty. A section of the 153 mile North Downs Way, passes through these woods, which has been used as an ancient pilgrimage route and local folk since medieval times.
Wild with Wheels provide Accessible Nature Experiences throughout Kent. Our experienced Disabled Walks Leader Gini Mitchell and North Downs Way Ambassador Michael Harden will be guiding this walk, which aims to encourage those with mobility limitations who rely on wheeled equipment, to access the beautiful wild spaces in Kent. We will be following the accessible track alongside the North Downs Way, which hosts one of many Art Installations in the area.
To mark International Forest Day on 21st March, we will be immersing ourselves in the Wood, to celebrate and appreciate all that trees and the life within them, have to offer. We will learn more about the native wildlife and discover the nurturing benefits of trees. We will spend a moment forest bathing, as well as offering a chance to find out more about your Birth Tree.
Ensure you have a full battery, which is in good condition and can manage at least 9 miles range (just in case). The terrain should be good for most boot scooters / power chairs and is suitable for wheelchair users too (who can manage the distance). Any questions on the accessibility, then please get in touch as we are happy to help. We have 2 routes, so depending on the ground conditions, we will decide which way to go nearer the time, as we will avoid any mud if it’s been wet recently. We shall send pre wheeled-walk information after receiving your booking confirmation.
