There is a short accessible trail across from Puffer's Pond in Amherst. If
you go past the parking for the beach area, you'll see a small parking spot
on the right. I forget the name of the trail, but it is pretty clearly
marked. As I said, it is short, but you go over the Mill River and by a lot
of the stone foundations of some of the factories that formerly lined the
river (and give the pond its official name, Factory Hollow Pond).

Hi all,

My niece, who is 17 and uses a wheelchair, is coming to visit me next month.
I have two questions:

1)Does anyone know of any wheelchair-accessible nature trails or spots in
the Valley, in addition to the DAR?

2)There are about five stairs to get up to the main floor of my house.  Any
ideas on how to make that entrance wheelchair friendly just for a day?  Is
it possible to rent a ramp?  Should I go out any buy some plywood?  Or what?

Thanks in advance for your advice.

Marcia Yudkin, Goshen
