Below is a collection of some of the best accessible trails around Oregon and SW Washington.  These have been compiled through conversations with other wheelchair users, notably Chuck Frayer, and an excellent 2008 article in the Oregonian by Terry Richards highlighting some of the best place to hike, fish and camp in Oregon. Following the outline of Richards’ article, added links to maps and resources about each trail. Feel free to leave a comment about additional trails or resources for the trails listed here.
