The 25 Best Accessible Trails in America

There’s stiff competition to get onto any “best of” trail list in the United States.

But with sweeping views of towering rock features, ruins of historic railroad towns, and some of the biggest trees in the world, these trails are all worthy on their own merits.

Unlike other lists, however, this one takes surface stability, cross slope, accessible parking, and trail grade into account.

Help was provided by experts like Accessible Nature creator Cecilia Travis and Disabled Hikers founder Syren Nagakyrie, as well as wheelchair adventurers from across the country, including Peter Littrel, Mark Irishsea, and “4WheelBob” Coomber.

Then dozens of national-park accessibility guides were scoured and a massive list was whittled down to bring you 25 trails that each offer a unique slice of American wilderness for those with disabilities.
