Hire a Tramper at Forest of Dean

Explore the Forest of Dean with an off-road mobility vehicle

Visitors with permanent or temporary limited mobility can hire one of two ‘Walking with Wheels’  trampers through the Countryside Mobility Scheme.

Trampers are off-road mobility scooters, which are easy to use and able to tackle a range of surfaces and gradients come rain or shine. You do not have to be registered disabled to hire a Tramper.

Our Trampers are suitable for exploring:

  • Symonds Yat Rock, leading down to the River Wye at Symonds Yat from Forest Holidays
  • Cyril Hart Arboretum
  • Mallards Pike

Maps of the routes will be provided when hiring.

Hire rates 

Price per Tramper: £2.50 per hour.

If you are not already a member of Countryside Mobility, becoming one is quick and easy and will be part of your induction (£3 for one-off hire, £5 for 2 weeks, £15 for 1 year). You can then use Trampers at around 50 other beauty spots around England.
