Access Recreation [AR] is a Portland, Oregon ad hoc committee that had developed guidelines for minimum information that should be provided about hiking trails and outdoor facilities, that would benefit hikers with disabilities, and which can be applied to websites, printed materials and at trail sites. 

Based on the success of the guidelines, as of 2014, AR was awarded two Nature in Neighborhoods [NIN] grants from Metro to conduct 36 trail reviews and to produce 18 videos over a three-year period.  Click here for the dedicated AccessTrails website.

AR was conceived by Georgena Moran who discovered that the primary obstacle to being able to hike trails was a lack of useful information.

The committee is made up of representatives from federal, state and local park agencies and organizations that support people with disabilities.
