The joys of the outdoors for all to explore

At AccessNow we are mapping parks and trails to empower people with disabilities to discover the accessible outdoors, self-assess and trip plan. Access to information helps reduce anxiety and risk of experiencing barriers, promoting safe and inclusive adventures for all.

Access For All

Mapping accessible landscapes through the lens of disability

Using the AccessOutdoors mobile app, we are capturing real-time insight shared by people with disabilities in collaboration with organizations across North America.

Our cutting edge technology helps to capture the authentic experience of accessibility outdoors based on diverse lived experiences out on trails.

Once captured, unique insight about trails is shared on the AccessNow platform where users can discover accessibility reviews regarding slope, terrain, amenities and much more. If your perspective isn’t reflected, we welcome you to contribute your own review for all to discover.
