Group Hikes: Redwoods Parks, California

Join Disabled Hikers for a casual gathering and wheelchair accessible hike at one of four redwoods parks in Northern California!

You are invited to Disabled Hikers first group hikes in California! Syren is working on an accessible travel guide with Save the Redwoods League. This will be a great opportunity to gather with other people who are disabled in the outdoors and learn about trail assessments from Syren.

Our events are disability-led and disability-centered. Group hikes are supportive experiences; we adjust the hike to meet everyone’s needs and take a break whenever someone needs one. It is a safe space to share your access needs before and during the gathering.

Where we will be:

February 9th, 2022
Henry Cowell Redwoods State Park, Santa Cruz ($10 parking fee)
Time: early afternoon

February 10th, 2022

Samuel P. Taylor State Park, Lagunitas ($8 parking fee)

Additional Information

These events are free for people who are disabled, chronically ill, neurodivergent, or otherwise have personal lived experience of disability. Caregivers and family members are also welcome.

Masks are required for everyone who can wear them, regardless of vaccination status. We will be outdoors the entire time.

Please do not bring your pet. Pets are generally not allowed in these parks, with the exception of day use picnic areas and very few trails. Service animals are welcome.

If the park fees are a barrier, please let us know. We may be able to reimburse your fee.

We do not have exact times for the gatherings yet, because Syren is traveling. We will follow up with details soon!
