The Sandstone Trail skirts the edge of the scheduled area, joining 2 definitive PROWs. In the immediate area of the castle (outside the gates) there are 10 definitive routes connecting to the minor rural road which surrounds the castle. These are all of foot path designation and vary in condition. The general network of paths appears to be lightly used, outside the area of the castle.
Paths within the vicinity of the castle are along desire lines, where it is suitable to walk, generally on an open access understanding. The main path to the top of the hill, is gravelled and stepped in places. Beeston Outdoor Education Centre is situated adjacent to FP14A linking to the Sandstone Trail just south of the castle. The centre uses the castle area heavily and also the linking rights of ways.
Interpretation is limited outside the castle walls: there is a Sandstone Trail information panel situated near the gatehouse of the castle. Parking is limited in the area. Beeston Castle has a designated parking area which is closed when the castle is closed and there is no interpretation sited in this car park.
