The Green Mountain National Forest strives to make our facilities, programs, and services accessible to all people. All of our administrative offices are located in accessible facilities. The Forest continually upgrades facilities to incorporate universal design to ensure the integration of all people, to the greatest extent possible, without separate or segregated access for people with disabilities. This means everyone benefits – from people with disabilities, families with young children, and older people.
Please pay attention to the weather and please come prepared. Weather can play a role in making a normally accessible site inaccessible on a temporary basis as tree branches may fall across a trail or heavy rains may wash out gravel surfacing.
Campgrounds with Accessible Facilities
Facilities include accessible vault or flush toilets (Hapgood Pond only), accessible showers (Hapgood Pond only) and some accessible site furnishings (fire rings and picnic tables). Campsites, pathways and roads have compacted gravel or soil surface.
Picnic Areas and Overlooks with Some Accessible Facilities
(Facilities have accessible parking and may have accessible picnic tables and accessible vault toilets. Please call for more information.)
Trails with Accessible Surfacing and Grades less than 8%
Alpine Skiing (Downhill) These facilities, which operate on the Green Mountain National Forest under special use contracts, offer adaptive programs which promote independence and further equality through access and instruction to alpine skiing.
For year round programs and activities throughout Vermont that serve individuals with a variety of special needs including physical, cognitive, and developmental disabilities contact Vermont Adaptive Ski & Sports. http://www.vermontadaptive.org/
