Your Comments Needed on Accessible Trails
"The U.S. Access Board is asking for comments on their October 2009 "Draft Final Accessibility Guidelines for Outdoor Developed Areas" by December 18, 2009.
These Guidelines will become final direction for accessibility on trails on Federal land. Once the Guidelines are finalized they will be the basis for future regulations which will apply to ALL new trails on local and State lands as well. It is critical that trail designers, contractors, and managers review these guidelines closely and comment on issues or concerns they see."
