Access For All
Borrow an all-terrain wheelchair from CLC. They have knobby mountain bike-type tires and disc brakes to provide a secure ride across rough ground. The frames are made from a magnesium alloy that is 35% lighter than aluminum. The chairs were custom-made for CLC by Lasher Sports in Alaska. To arrange for a rental, contact Marcia Cary at 518.392.5252 ext. 202 or email firstname.lastname@example.org.
ACCESS FOR ALL TRAIL
A one-mile flat trail at the Greenport Conservation Area includes three scenic overlooks, a gazebo and picnic shelter. The “Access for All” trail is the first of its kind along the Hudson River.
The trail has a firm and stable surface, allowing visitors in wheelchairs to access the bluffs overlooking the Hudson River. In addition, the trailhead, gazebo, and picnic shelter overlooks have been paved with natural stone, providing durability and accessibility to these popular destinations.
New signs installed at the kiosk and along the bluff overlooking the river were specifically designed for the visually impaired. A trail map with Braille text has been installed at the entrance, where visitors can also pick up a large-print version of the trail guide for the accessible trail. Two additional interpretative signs are located on the bluffs overlooking the Hudson. One of the signs gives a brief overview of the cultural and natural history of the river and surrounding area. The second is a three-dimensional representation of the view.
The Access for All Trail is funded by the Hudson River Foundation’s Catskill-Olana Viewshed Mitigation Fund.
Harrier Hill is a Universally Accessible site.
