Opened in 2015, the Wilderness Matters INTEGRIS Jim Thorpe Courage Trail offers new pathways to possibility for individuals with disabilities and mobility limitations.
The half-mile mile trail curves through the park's woodlands, and nearby meadows and streams, providing users with the opportunity to enjoy the outdoor world in a meaningful way.
The trail was the brainchild of Oklahoma City resident Jack McMahan, whose own experience with disability inspired him to create new opportunities for others to enjoy nature and wildlife.
Local non-profit organization Wilderness Matters raised funds for the trail, including a significant donation from the INTEGRIS Jim Thorpe Rehabilitation Hospital.
New trail amenities will be added in 2017, including:
- Improved wayfinding signage for the vision and hearing impaired
- Touch-based interpretive exhibits with Braille
- Hand-held audio devices for nature information and storytelling
- Wheelchair accessible "tree house"
