Often paths and tracks can be made more accessible to mobility scooters with a few simple changes.
Gates: Does the gate need to be there?
Is the gate wide enough?
Can the gate be opened from both sides?
Can the latch be reached from a mobility scooter?
Paths: Does a small gully or bank need to be there?
Can a pile of stones be removed?
Bridges: Is the bridge wide enough for a scooter?
