Syren Nagakyrie’s The Disabled Hiker’s Guide to Western Washington and Oregon (Falcon Guides) 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 Nagakyrie’s skilled and detailed review and established accessibility guidelines. Nagakyrie will be joined in conversation by Naomi Ortiz, author of Sustaining Spirit: Self-Care for Social Justice.
