HistoryThis facility offers unique recreational opportunities for visitors in wheel chairs. The trail is specially treated to create a natural looking hard surface with average slope of 3% or less, linked with a wheelchair accessible bridge. Vantage points for anglers have been provided. Two campsites at Baldy Campground are modified for wheelchair visitors as are outhouses, cooking grills, and picnic tables.
