About Disabled Hikers

Disabled Hikers is an inclusive disability-led and disability-centered organization grounded in principles of disability justice. Syren Nagakyrie, the founder of Disabled Hikers, is a multiply disabled and chronically ill person who is an enthusiastic about the outdoors and disability community.

We welcome anyone who needs a group of supportive, slow moving hikers. We also welcome those who are new to hiking and supportive friends and family. The group hikes together; we adapt the hike to match the needs of everyone present, rest when needed, and make decisions about when to turn back as a group.

All of our events begin with a moment to honor the land and the Indigenous peoples, followed by group introductions. There is never any pressure to share anything, and if you want to be anonymous that is okay too.

Other things to keep in mind:
Please read the hike description. Trails are chosen to be as enjoyable as possible for the most folks, but only you can decide if a hike is appropriate for you.

Please do not offer anyone advice or assistance without asking first.

If you have questions at any time, please ask. We’re here for you!
