Choose trips that match your ability

Each trip has a rating and description to convey the level of physical activity involved and the accessibility of the venue. These are listed on our online registration website and in print materials. Please be sure to read the trip rating and description completely and choose trips that match your ability.  

Important Notes:

  • All trips require the ability to get on/off the van independently using grab bars and 3 steps and ability to participate in trip activities independently. Trip drivers/leaders are not permitted to push, pull, or lift patrons. Those who need direct support, may have a personal aide register and provide direct support during the trip. Need an accommodation? Contact the Trip Coordinator. 
  • Venue accessibility is different for every trip. Be sure to read trip description thoroughly. 
  • Any trip with elevation of 9,000’ boosts rating to moderate or active depending on level of walking/activity needed. So, a LIGHT trip at elevation is a moderate trip.
