Stubbs Trail

Paradise Trail

The trail is a circular walk of 2km. The vast majority of the walk is over natural trodden ground. The are some steep inclines and descents including narrow pathways in areas. Kissing gates along the route may restrict access for some visitors. The route is generally thought to be suitable for visitors of reasonable physical fitness and no mobility impairment that would restrict access on narrow pathways with steep inclines.

Meadow Loop Trail

The trail is a circular walk of 1.3km. The vast majority of the walk is over natural trodden ground around meadowland. The are some steep inclines and descents including narrow pathways in areas. Kissing gates along the route may restrict access for some visitors. The route is generally thought to be suitable for visitors of reasonable physical fitness and no mobility impairment that would restrict access on narrow pathways with steep inclines.

Coastguard Trail

The Coastguard Trail is a circular walk of around 2km from the Churchill Lane Car Park. The route takes in areas of the Coastline and involves some steep inclines and deep sandy ground surfaces which should be taken into consideration before attempting the walk.

Oliver's Trail

Oliver's Trail starts from the Churchill Lane Car Park and is a circular walk of just under 2 km. The trail starts along a constructed pathway following the same course as the Coastguard trail for approximately 650 metres before turning through a gated pathway that winds its way back through the marshland. The return leg of the trail is over mainly natural trodden ground with some narrow and deeply rutted tracks which involve steep inclines all of which should be taken into consideration prior to attempting the walk. The trail is considered to be suitable for visitors with a generally good level of physical fitness but not for those whose mobility may be impaired.

Easy Access Trail

The easy access trail is considered suitable for all visitors. Some of the viewing platforms have ramped or inclined approaches which may not be accessible without assistance however this should not detract from the overall enjoyment. The trail is a circular walk of around 1.4km if taken in its entirety, this includes accessing the viewing platforms. It is possible to take a short cut from around the mid point of the trail which reduces the overall length to below 700 metres. The trail is for the most part over a constructed pathway of crushed stone over a firm base. There are minimal changes in gradient on the level path, again with the exception of inclines and access ramps onto viewing platforms. The pathway is suitably wide along its length and there are bench seating opportunities at regular intervals along its length. The easy access trail offers scenic views across salt marshland which is the habitat for a variety of flora and fauna.

Toilet
