Mount Rainier Accessibility Self-Evaluation and Transition Plan
The goals of the plan are to:
1) document existing park barriers to accessibility for people with disabilities
2) provide an effective approach for upgrading facilities, services, and programs
3) instill a culture around creating universal access.
The evaluation identified areas where the park can improve accessibility of physical assets and facilities, as well as programming and digital resources. Moving forward, the park will use this plan as a guide to obtain funding and plan projects that will improve accessibility at Mount Rainier.
Your input on the draft plan helped us to prepare the Final Accessibility Self-Evaluation and Transition Plan and will help as we work to ensure that Mount Rainier National Park is more accessible to all visitors. To view the final plan, click on "Document List."
Mount Rainier National Park's Accessibility Self-Evaluation and Transition Plan (SETP) includes findings from the self-evaluation process, as well as a plan for improving accessibility parkwide. The Accessibility Self-Evaluation and Transition Plan resulted from the work of a National Park Service (NPS) interdisciplinary team, including planning, design, and construction professionals; and interpretive, resource, visitor safety, maintenance, and accessibility specialists. Site plans, photographs, and specific actions for identified park areas were developed. Associated time frames and implementation strategies were established to assist NPS park staff in scheduling and performing required actions and to document completed work. Park policies, practices, communication, and training needs were also addressed.
