Accessibility 

The trail is suitable for pushchairs in dry weather. Pushchairs will need to access the trail via the gate entrance off Heworth Green (A1036 Road): Foss Fairy Trail - Google Maps

Currently the trail is not accessible to wheelchairs or mobility scooters. The walkway by the river is on uneven ground and some sections are narrow and close to the river.

Scooters and cycles and are not permitted to be ridden down the river pathway as this may endanger pedestrians.
