The width is important as well. I have been on footpaths that slanted
downward across the face of a steep incline. The slope of the path was
moderate, but the path was only about half a meter wide, with 45-degree
slopes above and below the path. A person on foot could navigate the
path (preferably with the aid of a walking stick), but a wheelchair user
would be risking their life on that path.
