ABSTRACT
This article looks at the improvements made by the Department of Environmental Conservation to its outdoor facilities in New York State as of December 2005. The concept of access to the outdoors has been changed by the combination of technology and an awareness of the needs and capabilities of people with disabilities. A structure in the parking lot for horse trails at North-South Lake in the Catskill Forest Preserve is built as an accessible equestrian mounting platform. INSET: VISIT SANTANONI.
