New Accessible Travel Book Highlights the Golden State

Candy Harrington’s latest guidebook focuses on wheelchair-accessible areas of California.

Cover of California National Park Road Trips for Wheelchair Users and Slow Walkers shows mountain and forest view.

The new book, California National Park Road Trips for Wheelchair Users and Slow Walkers, offers information useful for planning a road trip, including detailed driving itineraries; descriptions and photos of accessible rooms at national park lodges; accessible campground information; lists of accessible trails, attractions and drives in or near national parks; and fly/drive suggestions with accessible rental vehicle resources.

“I’ve been road tripping through California for most of my life,” Harrington said in a June 20 news announcement. “I know where to get the best Half Dome views, how to snag a Muir Woods reservation, and what’s the best spot to stop along the Mendocino coast for a secluded picnic. And I’ve included those suggestions — along with access details — in this title.”

Harrington has long specialized in accessible travel and is the founding editor of Emerging Horizons. Get the new book on California or browse other travel titles at
