To enhance the understanding, skills and knowledge of municipalities, entrepreneurs and other administrators of nature territories on accesibility and provision of tourism products and services, NGO Apeirons together with Kurzeme Planning Region have developed the Guidelines and the Accessibility Check-list for Nature Trails, which lists the key criteria to determine the compliance of the trail with accessibility requirements.

The Guidelines illustrate the key accessibility principles, whereas the Check-list (CL) details the most important questions, grouped under several sections, to assess whether the nature trail, its amenities and related infrastructure are accessible to people with movement, visual, hearing and cognitive impairment, seniors, parents travelling with baby-strollers etc. The CL also provides for the recommended values and limits, such as the minimum width of the trail, the maximum slope etc.

We hope that the two documents shall serve as a handy guide to all trail administrators (municipalities, nature protected areas’ administrations, private owners etc.) in order to determine the trail’s compliance with the minimum recommended accessibility requirements, as well as facilitate further work on adaptation of trails, by identifying the weak points and stimulating a step by step adjustment of the trail infrastructure.

The guidelines have been developed with the support of the Interreg V-A Latvia-Lithuania Programme 2014-2020 as part of the UniGreen project No. LLI-010.

The CL has been developed with support of the Central Baltic Programme 2014-2020 as part of the project CB786 “Nature Access to All” (NatAc).
