Re: “Slow Roll

Thanks for the article and all your work that you do to help disabled. We have used the Hammond Trail, Hikshari Trail, Board Walk in Eureka, and the Headwaters trail. All very nice and we are happy to have them. Wish the Board walk and the Adorni trail were attached it would make a longer walk. We have used the Arcata Marsh main trail, but it is very bumpy and hard on his wheelchair and his bottom. Can't use the beach chair because I'm afraid the rocks will pop the tires. I think Arcata should pave some of those trails for the disabled. I'm surprised they haven't.

Re: “Slow Roll

My husband is in a wheel chair and we have had such difficulty visiting the beaches he loves and use to take his students to. He was a Marine Biology teacher. We discovered a beach wheel chair on Craig's list which we purchased, but are now finding it difficult to get access to the beach with that. He cannot use a motorized chair and must be pushed by his aide.So far we discovered Clam beach north parking lot is easy to get him too. We also used King Salmon beach, but the entrance is too small for a wheel chair so we had to lift him from one chair thru the entrance and put him in the beach chair. Then it was a breeze to the beach, but that entrance needs to be widened. Samoa beach is too steep to push him up and down so that's out. Big Lagoon might work too but we haven't tried it yet. Do you have other suggestions?
