With dramatic peaks and winding rivers, Yosemite is a beloved destination for hiking, climbing and other outdoor activities. In recent years, with support from Conservancy donors, the park has made great strides in improving accessibility for visitors with disabilities. Much of Yosemite’s famed wilderness, however, lies far from paved paths and shuttle stops.

The No Limits program helps youth and adults with physical disabilities explore parts of the park that previously might have been out of reach. Led by two pioneers in adaptive outdoor recreation, No Limits makes granite walls and rugged trails accessible to people with physical challenges. In 2017, your support helped 11 participants enjoy a five-day experience in Yosemite Valley that included programs with rangers, cycling expeditions, and rock-climbing.

Your gift helped No Limits participants connect with Yosemite while pushing their personal limits and learning about the natural world.

Project Notes

Beyond the paved paths of Yosemite Valley are countless miles of rugged trails and quiet wilderness that offer adventure and solitude that can’t be found anywhere else.
