New Guide to Access on Outdoor Sites Available

A new guide on achieving accessible outdoor sites, including trails and camping areas, is now available from the U.S. Access Board. The 100-page document discusses and illustrates provisions of accessibility guidelines the Board issued last fall for outdoor sites developed by the federal government.  The Access Board developed the accessibility guidelines for trails, camping and picnic facilities, viewing areas, and beach access routes through extensive public input from the disability community, Federal land management agencies, and other interested individuals and organizations.
