Webinar Outline

As a person with a disability, Enock has been working with Maine Trail Finder to further the progress in the accessibility of outdoor spaces. His main focus has been on the accessibility of trails. During this webinar, he is planning to speak about their philosophies toward furthering that goal. Through his personal experience hiking the trails of Maine and using trail ratings and descriptions to choose their hikes, the presenter has gained various philosophers about what outdoor accessibility really means. He believes there are different levels of accessibility just like there are different levels of difficulty. He believes everyone deserves a choice as to what adventure means to them. He will delve into his ideas for giving access to people of all abilities through various types of barrier removal to additions that can be made to signage, trails, and other features of outdoor spaces. If we all work together, we can open up everyone's world.

Learning Objectives:

  • Methods to assist various types of abilities on trail
  • How to write better descriptions (what to include)
  • Ways to improve already existing trails


This webinar qualifies as a Health, Safety, and Welfare (HSW) course (via LA CES).
