The Disabled Hiker’s Guide to Western Washington and Oregon is the first book of its kind to consider the diverse needs of disabled people in the outdoors. This groundbreaking guidebook includes 60 outdoor adventures, including drive-up experiences, verified wheelchair accessible trails, and foot trails suitable for disabled hikers. This guide removes one of the barriers to access - a lack of information - by utilizing a rating system and detailed trail information designed for the disability community. Each trail is personally assessed according to Syren's skilled and detailed review and established accessibility guidelines.

Syren Nagakyrie is the founder of Disabled Hikers and the author of numerous trail guides and travel itineraries for people who are disabled. Their work bridges a gap in resources that are created by disabled people for disabled people. Through years of trial and error, Syren discovered what makes the outdoors accessible for them, and believes strongly in the importance of connection to place as an antidote to the isolation so many disabled people experience. Syren also leads group hikes, offers presentations, and consults with parks and organizations to improve access and inclusion for people with disabilities.

Online registration closes one hour prior to the event. Walk-ins will be welcome if there are available spaces.
