Westchester Parks Foundation

A new adaptive hike initiative from the Westchester Parks Foundation features a free “All-Terrain Trackchair” program that allows people living with paralysis, spinal cord injury, cerebral palsy and other disabilities the opportunity to enjoy the trails system.

The 1-2 mile guided hike is done with a very cool looking “chair” that can be used on dirt trails, mud, sand and grass. (Check it out on lohud.com.)

The program rotates throughout Westchester County Parks up through November 2023. The 700-acre Saxon Woods Park is its first stop, with guided hikes available there throughout April.

Because of limited availability, the website says it may only be reserved by those “who find it difficult to experience the designated trail without assistance.”

You can find the calendar and registration here (yes,  you must register!).
