Back when we were based in the Los Angeles area, we came up with a list of Southern California’s Top Wheelchair hiking trails. Now that we live in the northern half of the state, we figure it’s time to start another list up here. We’re also lucky that Tim is finally starting to show an interest in the world outdoors so we’re able to attack it a little better now than we were back in L.A.
This will be an ongoing list, with additions as we find and experience them. Here is our list of the best wheelchair accessible hiking trails in Northern California.
ELFIN FOREST, Baywood Park (Morro Bay) – So called because the coastal live oaks that grow here are stunted due to poor soil conditions and consant winds. They rarely get over 10 feet tall here.
A one mile interpretive, boardwalk train winds through the dunes here in the southern end of Morro Bay.
Although the trail has many trailheads, only the entrance on 16th Street is accessible. There are two handicapped parking spots, neither are paved but should not prove to be a problem
