Accessible hiking and golfing

Explore accessible trails and adaptive hiking opportunities in Massachusetts state parks, and learn about adaptive golf equipment.

There are a range of different types of accessible trails in our parks to explore on your own. You can hike on paved rail trails, paved pathways, and accessibly-designed stone dust hiking trails.
The Universal Access Program also offers seasonal adaptive hiking programs from May–October each year. These group programs use conventional hiking trails on moderate terrain and include specialized equipment and staff support.
If you have limited mobility, DCR's golf courses offer specialized single-rider golf carts that you can rent to use on the driving range or the green. Several organizations offer programs for people with disabilities to learn and play golf at DCR golf courses.
