NORTH CAROLINA

North Carolina has a number of trails with minimal obstacles.  Some are very easy and others are wheelchair accessible.  Here are just a few of them.
These links  were found through Internet search.  I would love some first-hand information. With your help, we can share our knowledge with disabled people everywhere and also increase awareness of the need for more accessibility. Please e-mail me with your suggestions using the form to the right.

    HikerwithcaneLake Trail is described as 1.25 miles and easy.  “The trail begins behind the visitor’s center and follows the shoreline with beautiful views of Bass Lake. Keep watch for waterfowl, osprey and snakes.”
    Wheelchair AccessibleGreenway connection to Womble Park is a “1.32-mile paved greenway that travels past Sugg Farm to Grigsby Avenue across from an entrance to the paved Womble Park trails.”  I am assuming that this is accessible, but the website doesn’t say, so call first:  919-557-2496.
