Disability community and justice in the outdoors
Disabled Hikers is an entirely Disabled-led organization. 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.
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 a leading advocate for inclusion and accessibility in the outdoors, guided by disability justice principles.
Our work includes: writing trail guides, leading group hikes, consulting with parks and organizations, presenting at workshops, featuring articles and podcasts, maintaining a website and social media presence, and advocating for social change.
Disabled Hikers was founded in March 2018 by Syren Nagakyrie. We incorporated as a nonprofit in January 2021.
