Terrain Zero Definition

Terrain Zero describes terrain which meets one of the following criteria:

  1. Meets all the following criteria:
    • is below 500 metres above sea level; and
    • is within 30 minutes travelling time from a road which can take an ordinary road-going ambulance or a building which is occupied (such as a farm) or another means of summoning help (such as a telephone box); and
    • contains no element of mountainous steep ground (routes or areas where the average person would need to regularly use their hands at least for balance if not for actual progress. This does not stop people from using their hands as an aid to confidence.)

  2. Is a road, or path adjacent to a road, on which you would expect to see traffic.
