Article discusses the accessibility features incorporated in western Pennsylvania’s Camp Kon-O-Kwee. At the time the article was written, a five-mile nature trail designed specifically for people with physical disabilities was under construction. Upon completion, the trail will feature the latest high-tech equipment in order to provide people with disabilities with a valuable learning experience. The trail will be paved with an asphalt surface that can be easily traversed by people with disabilities. Features along the path include three kiosks with various panels that display important information, from directions to interpretive information. The kiosks also provide hands-on rock samples, fossil specimens, and replicas. A total of 56 panels will include colorful graphic art, Braille, a raised trail symbol, and a raised stop number. Photographs of Camp Kon-O-Kwee are included.
