Approximately 1 mile of new trail meets proposed federal accessibility standards to the extent possible at this time. This unpaved trail connects the parking area to an existing network of ranch roads and trails, where some sections do not meet accessibility standards. Accessible parking spaces (unpaved but leveled and signed), picnic tables, portable restrooms and hand-washing stations also are available. When arriving, ask staff to direct you to accessible parking.
