Trail Accessibility

Designed to support mobility for all, these maps provide information on trails and trail slope or grade (degree of steepness).

Paved trails in the River Valley Parks are 2.5m to 3m wide asphalt surfaces with a yellow centre line.

Other trails are granular (non-paved) with rough gravel surfaces and may not be appropriate for wheelchair users without assistance.

Check the legend to see which symbols designate paved and non-paved trails.

Grades are identified on the map as:

  • Moderate: Grades of 5 – 9%, will challenge some users with reduced mobility, especially in longer sections. For comparison, a well built wheelchair ramp is about a 6% grade.
  • Difficult: Grades of 10% and greater, are challenging for most users and require good skills and fitness regardless of your mode of travel.
  • Grades of less than 5% are not indicated on the map — changes to slopes are generally gradual and should not be a challenge to most users.
