Get out and enjoy nature with these wheelchair-accessible trails in Maine

Scattered throughout the hilly, rocky wilderness of Maine are dozens of smooth, wide trails that have been carefully constructed to provide people of all abilities access to the great outdoors.

These trails were designed for people who use wheelchairs, strollers, walkers and other mobility devices. They’re also great for people who have a difficult time walking over uneven terrain, and those who are simply looking to have a stroll without having to watch their footing.

“A lot of effort has been put into building these trails,” said Rex Turner, outdoor recreation planner for the Maine Bureau of Parks and Lands. “At the same time, I think it’s fair to say that there’s a lot more work to be done. It’s an important aspect of managing the outdoors because we want everybody to have really good opportunities to experience the outdoors.”
