Our goal is to improve trail accessibility by
an evaluation process we call the ATE (the Accessible Trail Evaluation) process done by a team involving people with disabilities.
The ATE is a modified form of the UTAP (Universal Trail Assessment Process) that is used nationally.
In 2007 we had two volunteers that were trained in the Universal Trail Assessment Process in Davenport, Ia. They are now certified "Trail Assessment Coordinators", and run the Wheels On Trails 'Assessible Trail Evaluation (ATE)' program. In 2009 they received additional 'Trail Construction' training under a second training grant from the Ordean Foundation.
DULUTH ACCESSIBLE TRAIL EVALUATION
( 2007-2009 UNIVERSAL TRAIL ASSESSMENT PROCESS)
In 2007 we cooperated with the City of Duluth in obtaining a $10,000 grant for trail repairs on the trails that we evaluated during the 2007-2008
We are seeking volunteers to assist with trail and park evaluation in N.E. Minnesota
