OREGON HIKERS

2022 ACCESSIBILITY PROJECT

ACCESSIBILITY FOR OREGON HIKERS

This summer, the TKO Communications Committee is excited to begin work on a pilot project to add accessibility information to some of the most popular hikes on OregonHikers.org. The 2022 Trailkeepers Leadership Summit keynote and field session was a collaboration with Access Recreation to train TKO leadership on accessibility issues, data collection and problem solving. Our volunteers are eager to put these skills to use!

GATHERING THE DATA

This pilot program will train and deploy TKO Trail Ambassador volunteers to go out and gather data on the top 10 most visited trails on the OregonHikers.org field guide. By providing this data for the first time on the site, folks with various accessibility needs will have access to the information they need to make decisions about what trails are a good fit for their personal adventure style.

GET INVOLVED

Take the online Trail Ambassador training. This is a short virtual training that can be done on your own time and will give you an introduction to TKO and Ambassador volunteering in general. These trainings will equip you with the resources to feel confident when talking to visitors.
