Friends of Harriman State Park is excited to introduce the John Muir ADA (American Disabilities Act) compliant Interpretive Trail & Fishing platform at Harriman State Park of Idaho. Inspired by Muir’s 1913 “Island Park” Journal, the interpretive trail tells a story of the natural wonders of the area. In addition, this 3/4 mile loop trail provides an opportunity for those with special needs to better access this special place we all love. It provides a handicap fishing platform increasing opportunities for those with less mobility to fly fish the world famous Henrys’ Fork River, an experience the Harriman’s & their guests treasured before us.
To harmonize with Harriman State Park’s intrinsic beauty, the trail was surfaced with Road Oyl, a pine resin formulation that binds packed gravel maintaining a rustic look while providing a firm surface. It is made from all natural ingredients and can be used in close proximately to wetlands and other environmentally sensitive areas.
Please join us on Saturday June 27th at 11:00am for our grand opening and dedication ceremony. Outdoor assistive recreation technologies for those with less mobility will be on hand to help inspire those that desire better access to the great outdoors.
