Physical requirements

The walks take place within the city and are about 2 miles (3km) in length with a gradual climb of about 100 feet (30 metres). The route is not physically demanding and will be taken at a leisurely pace but may include steps and some short slopes. Wheelchair users are welcome and the route will be adjusted to avoid steps but the Guides are not able to assist with moving the chairs.
