Trails and other areas open to the public for pedestrian use must also be open to motorized vehicles used by persons with mobility disabilities. Any type of motorized vehicle must be allowed unless the trail owner or operator creates specific written policies justifying restrictions.
Non-motorized trails can be planned, designed, constructed, and managed in ways that are both physically and environmentally sustainable while creating desirable and enjoyable experiences for trail users.
A property owner may convey to others the rights to create, maintain, and use a trail on their property without giving up ownership and enjoyment of the land through which the trail passes.
How can trail groups, local governments, and land trusts responsibly plan, develop, and operate trails that are accessible by all people, including those with limited mobility? What are best management practices? What is legally required? When is universal accessibility not appropriate?
