Penned by accessible travel expert Candy Harrington, this new travel guide highlights wheelchair-accessible trails, sites, and lodging options in Utah's five national parks.

If you've ever dreamed of exploring Utah's magnificent national parks, but thought the rugged landscape might be too much of a challenge because you use a wheelchair or get around a little slower, then pick up a copy of Barrier-Free Travel; Utah's National Parks for Wheelers and Slow Walkers ($8.95, C&C Creative Concepts), and prepare to hit the road.

Penned by accessible travel expert Candy Harrington, this new travel guide highlights accessible trails, sites, and lodging options in Zion, Bryce Canyon, Capitol Reef, Canyonlands and Arches National Parks.

Says Harrington, "There's a lot of information scattered around about access in these parks. Some of it is accurate and some of it isn't. My goal was to compile a comprehensive resource, with accessible lodging information, so it would be easier for wheelchair-users and slow walkers to plan their visits. And I'm very pleased with the finished product."

The book also includes information about recent access improvements in the parks. "I'm really impressed with the access upgrades that have been added in these parks over the years," says Harrington. "For example, in 2015 a beautiful five-mile long accessible multiuse trail was added in Bryce Canyon National Park, and the existing trail out to Double Arch in Arches National Park was upgraded."

This inclusive book is the third in a series of accessible travel guides to popular destinations throughout the United States. Says Harrington, "Although it's written for wheelchair-users and slow walkers, moms who have stroller-aged kids will appreciate the access information in this guide, as well as the future books in this series. In the end, good access really benefits everyone."

Known as the guru of accessible travel, Candy Harrington has covered this niche exclusively for the past 20 years. She's the founding editor of Emerging Horizons and the author of several accessible travel titles, including the classic, Barrier-Free Travel: A Nuts and Bolts Guide for Wheelers and Slow Walkers.
