Access for All in Three of Americas Most Rugged National Parks


New guidebook highlights wheelchair-accessible trails, hotels and activities in Glacier, Yellowstone and Grand Teton National Parks.

Ripon, CA, April 17, 2018 --(PR.com)-- Appearances can be quite deceiving, especially in Glacier, Yellowstone and Grand Teton National Parks. On the surface all three parks appear to be fraught with formidable natural obstacles that would exclude anybody with mobility issues; however upon closer examination a bevy of accessible trails, attractions and lodging options are revealed. And Candy B. Harrington highlights these offerings – and more – in her newest release, "Barrier-Free Travel; Glacier, Yellowstone and Grand Teton National Parks for Wheelers and Slow Walkers."

This useful guidebook is chock full of access information, including:

-Accessible Trails and Attractions
-Photos and Access Specifics of All Accessible Park Lodgings
-Accessible Lodging Options in Gateway Communities
-Barrier-Free Campgrounds
-Accessible Bus and Boat Tours
-Special Access Passes and Discounts
-Shuttles to and in the Parks
-Insider Access Tips

Says Harrington, “I was very impressed with the quality and variety of the accessible lodging offerings in all the parks. From the rustic cabins at Yellowstone’s Roosevelt Lodge, to the luxurious amenities at Jenny Lake Lodge in Grand Teton, there are accessible rooms for just about every taste and budget.”

This inclusive title is the fifth in Harrington’s national park series; and although it’s written for wheelchair-users and slow walkers, moms who have stroller-aged kids will also appreciate the access information in this guide. Additional access resources for some of America’s top national parks can be found on Harrington’s Barrier-Free National Parks website at www.barrierfreenationalparks.com.

Harrington’s new title also includes information on access upgrades in the parks, like the $19 million Jenny Lake Renewal Project. “Thanks to this ambitious project, a section of the lakeshore trail is now wide, level and nicely accessible,” says Harrington. “And wheelchair-users can easily roll aboard the accessible tour boats from the newly renovated dock.”

Access upgrades aren’t limited to Yellowstone either. “In Glacier National Park Xanterra has added some accessible Red Buses to their tour fleet, and the accessible Multiuse Trail in Grand Teton has been expanded,” notes Harrington. “I’m thrilled to be able to share these improvements with my readers,” she adds.

Known as the go-to expert on accessible travel, Candy B. Harrington has covered this niche exclusively for over 20 years. She's the founding editor of Emerging Horizons and the author of a sizable library of accessible travel titles. She also blogs regularly about accessible travel issues at www.BarrierFreeTravels.com.

Barrier-Free Travel; Glacier, Yellowstone and Grand Teton National Parks for Wheelers and Slow Walkers ($13.95, ISBN: 978-0-9985103-3-0) is available at www.BarrierFreeYellowstone.com.reeYellowstone.com.
