Groenier, James Scott. 2014. Accessible Gates for Trails and Roads. 1423 2311P. Missoula, MT: U.S. Department of Agriculture, Forest Service, National Technology and Development Program.

This tech tip includes drawings for gates that can be used to close roads and trails to motorized access while still allowing access by wheelchairs and, in some cases, horses.

When the Forest Service installs a gate, berm, or other type of restriction to block motorized access but encourages foot access, a passage 36 inches wide must be provided so a person using a wheelchair could get through (Section 504 of the Rehabilitation Act of 1973).

This publication replaces tech tip 0623–2340.

Keywords: accessibility, all-terrain vehicles, ATVs, chicanes, horses, kissing gates, motorcycles, wheelchairs
