Comments:

There is free parking on the car park at approximately 5339.650'N, 238.700'W. There are a number of old stone crazy paving steps to go down, hard packed dirt and gravel paths, the last thirty feet or so is on a mud surface, there is a fallen tree to cross and the cache is low and well tucked in. Bearing all this in mind I don't think this one is suitable for chair users without assistance, as per usual I leave the final decision to you. Hope this helps.

Cheers

Schnuz.

Comments:

Paid car parking at N 53 39.296 W 002 38.103 - free on Sunday and after 6pm.

There is a good, wheelchair friendly path which slopes gently for most of the way to GZ when it becomes a hard packed dirt path which can be muddy in places.

Depending on the route you take there may be some shallow steps to negotiate.

The last few metres is across the grass which can be a bit squelchy after lots of rain.

Comments:

Paid carpark adjacent to the side entrance to the park - free after 6PM and on Sundays and Bank Holidays.

The path from this carpark has been completely replaced and re-landscaped to provide a gently sloping route down to the main path through the park which is more wheelchair friendly than it had been previously.

The last 40 metres or so is on a dirt path which steps down from the main path via a couple of shallow stone steps, although you could just cut across the grass.

Dirt path is pretty solid. GZ is a little bit squelchy at the moment (December) but we have had a lot of rain of late.

Riding a mountain bike to GZ would certainly be possible. Wheelchair access might be possible but assistance might be required for final retrieval.
