U.S. Access Board Webinar: Accessible Trails

U.S. Access Board Webinar: Accessible Trails (November 5)

The next webinar in the U.S. Access Board's free monthly series will take place November 5 from 2:30 – 4:00 (ET) and will cover access to trails. This session will review requirements for trails that the Board issued in 2013 as part of a supplementary rule on outdoor areas developed by the federal government. These provisions, while applicable to national parks and other federal lands covered by the Architectural Barriers Act, can be used as a resource in addressing access to trails on other types of sites. Representatives from the Board and the National Park Service will conduct the session.

It’s been almost 2 years since accessibility standards became effective for trails on Federal land covered by the Architectural Barriers Act (ABA). Following the effective date, the Board published a guidebook to assist trail designers and operators when applying the provisions. This session will provide an overview of the federal trail provisions, highlighting some of the material in the new guidebook. A trail expert with the National Park Service, Flagstaff Area National Monuments will also offer some “on the ground experiences” of applying the standards to newly constructed trails and the alteration of existing trails. Session participants are encouraged to submit questions in advance.

For more information, including registration instructions, visit  www.accessibilityonline.org. Webinar attendees can earn continuing education credits (CEUs). Questions can be  submitted in advance of the session (total limited to 25) or can be posed during the webinar.
