Wilderness On Wheels Foundation was established as a not-for-profit corporation in March of 1986 to provide access for disabled persons to the natural outdoor environment.
BOARDWALK: Chart your course over an 8-foot wide boardwalk. It closely follows the bank of a rocky mountain trout stream. Explore wetland tundra. Turning toward a 12,300 foot mountain peak, the boardwalk begins a gentle climb through lush forests.
PICNIC TABLES: Picnic tables blend discreetly into the environment. It's pristine territory, but it has been made accessible for everyone.
CAMPING AREA: Pitch your tent on a deck elevated to the height of the seat of a wheelchair. The camping area is a completely accessible natural environment. Pack out what you pack in.
FISHING: An 8-foot wide boardwalk closely follows the bank of a meandering trout stream. Small rock dams amplify the sound of falling water. Lively brook trout can be seen darting from shallow pools to underwater caverns. Upstream, a spring-fed pond, stocked with rainbow trout, offers excitement for all anglers. Here, disabled and senior citizens alike are included for fishing fun!
WILDLIFE VIEWING: At an elevation of over 9,000 feet, abundant wildlife inhabit the territory. Deer, elk, and fox are occasionally sighted. Stellar Jays, Mountain Blue Birds, Raven and Pine Siskins are among the many birds.
