The Disabled Hiker’s Guide to Western Washington and Oregon: Outdoor Adventures Accessible by Car, Wheelchair, and Foot, published by FalconGuides, is now available!
The Disabled Hiker’s Guide to Western Washington and Oregon: outdoor adventures accessible by car, wheelchair, and on foot by Syren Nagakyrie is the first book of its kind to consider a variety of access needs in the outdoors. The book removes one of the barriers to access — a lack of information – by utilizing a rating system and detailed trail information designed for the disability community.
This groundbreaking guidebook features 60 outdoor adventures, including scenic drives, verified wheelchair accessible trails, and foot trails suitable for disabled hikers. Each trail is personally assessed according to Syren’s skilled review and established accessibility guidelines. Each entry provides detailed descriptions and driving directions, including public transit options when available.
It also contains additional hiking tips, resources, and Native land acknowledgments. This flagship book is the first of it’s kind, with many more to come.
The Disabled Hiker’s Guide is a dream for the future, when access to the outdoors is possible for everyone. It is manifested after an intense two year labor of love, and written during some of the most challenging circumstances. It is my hope that it opens the way for anyone who has felt excluded from hiking, particularly Disabled and chronically ill communities.
The book is available everywhere books are sold. The ‘Order Now’ link above directs you to Amazon, where Syren will earn a small percentage of the sale as a referral.
