It always does my heart good when I see that one of these falls are wheelchair accessible. We take for granted just getting outside and breathing fresh air and seeing the scenery as we’re driving along a road. I had a friend who was wheelchair bound and in a nursing home for twelve years before she passed away. She was so joyful, excited and appreciative whenever I took her on an excursion to go out to eat or go sight-seeing, that it made me joyful also. I think I benefited from our trips as much as she did.
That may be just a sign to you, but it’s beautiful to me.

The sun was shining through the treetops.
Most of the views along this path are like this; you are looking down at the river.
When we were there, there were lots of leaves and some pine cones – not too many. You will know if this will be a problem or not for your particular wheelchair. I think Pat’s would have been fine; you just get to kick a pine cone or two out of the way.
The fence gets in the way a little for the view, but it’s necessary. The drop here is… well … steep.
As you walk along, you can hear and get glimpses of the river and falls through the trees.
There’s a good glimpse of the falls through the trees.
A picnic table is provided right by the parking lot, so pack a picnic lunch and enjoy your day!
Agate Falls; it’s wheely nice!
