Choose trips that match your ability

Trip rating and description conveys the level of physical activity involved. Trips will have ratings listed on our online registration website and in print materials. Please be sure to read the trip rating and choose trips that match your ability accordingly. 

General Trip Ratings:

  • EASY – Mostly sitting; accessible venue 
  • LIGHT – Self-paced walking on even surfaces; accessible venue
  • MODERATE – Walking on varied surfaces/possible stairs; pace may be determined by guide
  • ACTIVE – Lots of walking; brisk pace; stairs or venue not accessible; elevation over 9,000’

Outdoor recreation ratings are separate. See outdoor rec ratings here

Important Notes:

  • All trips require ability to get on/off van independently using grab bars and 3 steps. If you are unable to do this, you do have the option of having a personal aide register and provide direct support during the trip. 
  • Any trip with elevation of 9,000’ boosts rating to moderate or active depending on level of walking/activity needed. So a LIGHT trip at elevation is a moderate trip.
  • Venue accessibility is different for every trip. Be sure to read trip description thoroughly.
