London Bridge – Lake Havasu


What happens when you buy an old bridge, ship it over to a little town on the Colorado River? You get a great place to enjoy the water, and there some nice wheelchair access if you know where to look.

Woodland Lake


Woodland Lake has a great trail that takes you all the way around the scenic lake.

The Apache Trail is a great drive and not for wimps. Its non-stop cut backs and curves. With hand-controls its really fun. The lake marina and restaurant are all plenty accessible and there’s some nice picnic areas with […]

What Acessing Arizona Is All About

Accessing Arizona is primarily designed for people who are looking for wheelchair accessible events, locations and activities. If you have paralysis (paraplegic or quadriplegic), Muscular Dystrophy, Spinal Bifida, or if you are an amputee, Accessing Arizona has information about an active lifestyle.
If you are traveling to Phoenix, Tucson, Flagstaff, Sedona or the Grand Canyon, the site offers insight about the accessibility. We cover trails, lakes, state parks, national parks and just about anything claiming to be handicapped accessible. The site also covers sports and recreation in Arizona.
From racing to rugby, from basketball to sled hockey, we cover all the local sports teams. Note: All photographs and essays are copyright Accessing Arizona, unless noted otherwise.
