You might be surprised at how many wheelchair accessible trails there are on the Peninsula and in the South Bay. There certainly could be more, but we’re lucky to have many places that are Americans with Disabilities Act (ADA) compliant, suitable for all abilities, and great for strollers, walkers and anyone looking for a less strenuous trail.
Many organizations and bloggers in the Bay Area have created helpful resources on wheelchair accessible and easy access trails (see below). The hard part is narrowing down the trail options enough to know where to go and when. We’ve compiled four wheelchair accessible trails that we at POST are particularly proud of because they take you through or near open spaces we’ve protected.
Since 1977, we’ve been hard at work protecting the open spaces of the Peninsula and South Bay, conserving over 76,000 acres of land in that time. Part of our goal is to connect people like you to the outdoors, providing you an escape from your everyday life with the wide-open spaces of this special corner of California.
Below you’ll find information on our favorite accessible trails. They are special places to many of our staff and, with some exploring, I hope they will become special for you too. Happy trails!
Peninsula Open Space Trust (POST) protects open space on the Peninsula and in the South Bay for the benefit of all. Since its founding in 1977, POST has been responsible for saving more than 80,000 acres as permanently protected land in San Mateo, Santa Clara and Santa Cruz counties. Learn more
