Building Disability Community and Justice in the Outdoors

Our Work

Disabled Hikers is a cross-disability-led nonprofit building disability community and justice in the outdoors. Our dream is an outdoor culture transformed by access, representation, and justice for Disabled and other marginalized people. 

We celebrate disabled people’s experiences in the outdoors. We help facilitate those experiences with information, resources, and events, including trail guides and group hikes. We are also committed advocates for justice, access, and inclusion, and work with parks, organizations, brands, and more. With disabled hikers and our allies, we are committed to making the outdoors accessible to all. We aim to accomplish this through community, resources, and action.

Who We Are

Syren and their dog Bengi walk in the woods. Syren is wearing a backpack and two walking poles.

We challenge the dominant narrative of who is considered to be valid and which experiences matter in the outdoors. Whether enjoying the outdoors means sitting by your window or thru-hiking a trail, you are welcome here.

We are cross-disability led and grounded in disability justice. We are hikers, birders, climate activists, homebound nature lovers, creators, and more.
