The nature center's five miles of hiking trails are utilized by thousands of people annually. However; due to the terrain, only a small portion of the trail system was accessible to individuals who use wheel chairs, walkers, strollers or have difficulty walking on uneven ground.
In 2011 Friends of Mosquito Hill, Inc. completed a fundraiser which allowed us to open the All People's Trail, a .6 mile paved trail, winding through our prairie planting and along the lowland forest edge, ending at our oxbow pond platform. An electric wheelchair is available to those needing assistance accessing the trail or building. Continuing ADA modifications in and around the interpretive building will help us remove barriers and make our facility welcoming to all people.
A brick patio at the entrance to the All People's Trail includes personalized, engraved bricks. Purchase an engraved brick and show your support for the All People’s Trail; to give people with disabilities an accessible trail at Mosquito Hill Nature Center.
