Tramper Trails

The Tramper is a specially designed four wheel drive all-terrain electric buggy which can be used off road and even on rough ground, mud and grass. It enables people who have difficulty walking to experience the countryside, woodlands and lakesides; and to accompany their friends and families when out walking.

Trampers are available from three local organizations and a range ofl trails designed for trampers are close by. Trampers can be delivered to Caldertop for your use.

Please take a look at our Tramper Trail Page for details
