Over The Hills and Through the Woods: Accessibility of Trails in the Outdoor Environment

Tuesday, November 18, 2003

Accessibility of the outdoor environment is one of the last frontiers in relation to defined accessibility standards. This session will focus on proposed rulemaking addressing accessible trails. An accessible trail is a trail that is accessible to and usable by people with disabilities. Accessible trails are identified as meeting minimum guidelines established by the U. S. Access Board. This session will focus on the rulemaking undertaken by the Access Board as well as the areas of debate within the outdoor recreation community.
