New Accessibility Guide for Grand Canyon Now Available

Just in time for the Grand Canyon’s centennial celebration, a new accessible guide to one of America’s most beloved national parks is now available.

Barrier-Free Travel: The Grand Canyon for Wheelers and Slow Walkers is now available from author Candy Harrington. The travel book includes accessibility guides to Interstate 40 in Arizona and to the famed Route 66.

The guide discusses wheelchair-accessible trails, attractions and lodging in and near Grand Canyon National Park. Harrington has also included transportation resources, such as accessible plane, helicopter, bus and train tours, and barrier-free camping and picnic areas.

The Barrier-Free Travel Web site features stories about accessible travel (and lack thereof), as well as a library of books on accessible travel. Harrington has previously written about Yosemite, Sequoia, Yellowstone, Grand Teton and Glacier national parks.
