Accessible Parks

Whether it's a National Park or a neighborhood park down the street, getting out and about in nature is important for everybody. There's a lot of fun to be had beyond the pavement! Getting off the sidewalk and surrounding oneself with nature is refreshing, invigorating, and part of maintaining a healthy lifestyle. The GRIT Freedom Chair makes the outdoors more accessible so you can enjoy all the world has to offer.

The America the Beautiful Pass, otherwise known as the the National Parks and Federal Recreational Lands Pass, is a free lifetime pass available to US citizens or permanent residents of the United States that have been medically determined to have a permanent disability. Passes can be obtained via phone, online, or in person at any of these recreation sites.

Riders who use the GRIT Freedom Chair at the park

Built for the park

The GRIT Freedom Chair was designed to be the best performing, most versatile, manual off-road wheelchair on the market. It has been tested in the roughest conditions on Earth, from the paths of Guam to the deserts of Utah, from the rainy forests of the American Northwest, to the sandy beaches of the Gulf Coast.

Easy-push levers make for longer adventures

The GRIT Freedom Chair's revolutionary lever drive gives you the leverage to handle whatever the trail throws at you. Its ergonomic design engages large muscle groups, making it twice as efficient as regular wheelchair push-rims, keeping you energized on the trail.

Durability you can depend on

The GRIT Freedom Chair combines MIT engineering with trail-tested mountain bike parts, enabling easy maintenance and customization. We thoroughly tested every part of the design both in the lab and in the field, and uphold what we build: If you do mange to break something, we'll help make it right!

Even though federal law requires accessibility in all state and national parks, these parks cover a lot of ground with multiple trails and attractions. With that in mind, we decided to create a list of the most accessible options out there!
