Goss Moor is a 480 hectare National Nature Reserve (NNR) which is owned and managed by Natural England. There is a lot to see and do as you explore Goss Moor using the multi-use trail.
The 7 mile (c. 12 km) circular trail is mostly flat and relatively easy - much of it off road - allowing disabled and novice walkers and cyclists easy and safe access to the moors. The trail is surfaced to be suitable for walking, cycling, horse-riding and for wheelchair or mobility scooter users and buggies. There are also additional and linking routes onto the nearby Tregoss Moor.
If you are using a wheelchair / mobility scooter you may need to have someone with you in some areas, as there are gates to open on parts of the trail.
