Pittsburgh, Pa. – October 4, 2020 – Everyone should have the opportunity to enjoy nature, and so accessibility is an important part of trail development at the Western Pennsylvania Conservancy. Our land stewardship staff and volunteers work to ensure that several trails are available for those with mobility and other physical challenges to watch wildlife and explore nature, including the young, elderly and people with disabilities.
ADA-accessible parking and navigable trails are available at several natural areas we care for and protect. Our natural areas and reserves are open to the public for free. Visitors should make their own determination as to whether they can access the trail. There are designated universal access (ADA) trails at:
Our headquarters building on Washington’s Landing in Pittsburgh is also fully ADA-accessible and provides for ADA-accessible parking. Learn more about all of our properties on our Explore Our Properties page.
