There’s two cool things about Canyon Lake. First is the drive. 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 accessible docks nearby. Whats really fun is the Dolly Steamboat. Its a great way to see the desert. The cruise is about 2 hours long. Be warned, the boats only accessible bathroom is over the bow.

This is definately a great day trip.

I was looking at some old photos and was reminded that Canyon Lake has perhaps the best fishing dock in Arizona for wheelchair anglers. As you near the marina, on your right just before a cool bridge is the Boulder Picnic Area. The forest service built what could practically be called a trail out over the lake. If you look at the photos, you can see they even lowered the rail in places so we can swoop up that whopper. I hope to get back there soon and take some decent photos.

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.
