Signposts and wheelchair signs in some places
The trail is wheelchair-accessible, which means that it can be travelled in a wheelchair or with a pram.
There are no steep rises on the trail, but the hillier areas make the trail challenging to negotiate in a wheelchair. The surface of the trail is either an easily passable dirt road or a path surfaced with stone dust, wide enough to travel in a wheelchair. There are also places where two people in wheelchairs can pass each other. There are railings and handrails as well as landings for resting at the steepest sections of the trail. There are two shortcuts along the trail.
