Accessible nature trails are becoming more popular around the country. In Massachusetts a new trail has been opened which is accessible to the visually impaired as well as people with mobility issues.
Guide ropes help those with low or no vision find their way down the trail. Braille posts give explanations of where on the trail they are and what the surrounding area is like. Smooth wide trails help to avoid tripping hazards and also make the path accessible to those in wheelchairs.
