The Americans with Disabilities Act (ADA) of 1990 addresses the accessibility ri
The Americans with Disabilities Act (ADA) of 1990 addresses the accessibility rights of the disabled to recreational facilities, and new regulations are being promulgated to cover trails, campgrounds, picnic areas and backcountry facilities such as privies, shelters and tent platforms. Motorized vehicle and sportsmen's groups are piggybacking on handicapped access issues in their quest for more roads, more drive-in sites and more boat ramps, and it is anticipated that two high-profile environmental battles in Maine, concerning access to John's Bridge on the Allagash Wilderness Waterway and the West Branch lands of Baxter State Park, will be affected by the new regulations. With comments by representatives of many Maine sportsmen's, conservation and handicapped advocacy groups.
