3.12. Wheelchair Accessibility

Some geocaches are wheelchair accessible.

One way to identify them is by using the Terrain rating. One star usually means that it is handicapped-accessible. Terrain is likely to be paved, is relatively flat and less than a 1/2 mile hike is required.

Another method is to look for the geocache attribute designating "wheelchair accessible." Attributes are listed along the right side, near the top of each geocache page. Those who use Pocket Queries (a Premium Member feature) may create a filter using these attributes, and automate their searches.

You may also want to see the Handicaching site. Handicaching aims to improve the accessibility of Geocaching for disabled people all over the world. (Please note: Groundspeak is not affiliated with Handicaching.)
