The Access Recreation Project is a joint effort of federal, state, local park agencies and organizations working to bring better information to the public on the accessibility of outdoor recreation areas. Our focus is on trails in the Pacific Northwest.


Through this joint effort we are developing a set of accessibility guidelines that can be applied to websites, trails and printed materials. When applied, these guidelines will allow trail users to make a more informed decision on which trail best suits their needs and desires.

We are hosting a community event where you will have the opportunity to voice your suggestions on what will help you find your trail of choice. There will also be an optional short trail walk to stimulate additional observations.  Dress appropriately – bring umbrellas if necessary.


We are looking for input from a wide spectrum of trail users to ensure we are meeting the needs of all.  You have been specifically contacted as a trail user or for the work you have done promoting the health and well-being of people with disabilities.  We invite you to join us at this community event for people with disabilities and service providers. This is groundbreaking work and we want you to be a part of it!  


Tri-Met bus route 12 stops at the Refuge entrance on Highway 99W: After you get off the bus, just to the right of the metal bench, is a 600 feet-long gravel path that leads to the visitor center


RSVP:  Space is limited. Please confirm your attendance by May 27th.
