A Fully Accessible Trail at the Harry C. Barnes Memorial Nature Center
Join ELCCT in completing this accessible trail!
This mile-long nature trail will be accessible to people using wheelchairs, strollers, walkers and other mobility devices. Benches will be installed frequently along the trail with special handles designed to assist people with disabilities. Scenic pull-offs with benches will allow for resting and learning about points of interest. The trail will access the pristine Freeman Hill Brook and will provide areas to quietly enjoy the sounds of its gently flowing waters. Trail surface will be a combination of compacted stone dust and boardwalks and will provide exceptional educational opportunities for people of all ages and abilities. Three shelters will be installed in unique habitats to provide wildlife viewing opportunities as well as cover during inclement weather.
