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. Detailed maps are provided for every trail, and the book features 100s of color photos.

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.

  1. Between “long overdue,” “perfect timing,” and “here’s to a future of freedom,” I hail all who have worked see this amazing project come full circle!!! I can hardly wait to own a copy myself and purchase the guide as gifts. With deep gratitude, a former high energy athlete — a now frustrated disabled senior.
