Braille Trails

A Braille Nature Trail usually includes a guide rope for the visually impaired to hold and follow along the path with markers for Braille informational signs. Some trails have tactile walkways to provide direction, others have audio components such as guided audio tours or smartphone access, and many are wheelchair accessible. 

The first Braille Nature Trail was dedicated in 1967 in Aspen, Colorado. A science teacher named Bob Lewis was interested in engaging his students in nature. Lewis had the idea to make a nature trail accessible to the visually impaired and add informational Braille signs that would engage visitors in sensory experiences, and bring the visually impaired closer to nature. The concept was born and was soon being duplicated across the country.
