Welcome to accessible* Homer
This website emphasizes what’s available in Homer for those experiencing disabilities.
TRAILS promotes inclusive recreation on the southern Kenai Peninsula. We want folks who love travel and adventure to find what they’re looking for right here in Homer—a fun and beautiful place we love to share.
* accessible means different things in different contexts. If a place meets standards of the Americans with Disabilities Act (ADA), we make that clear. If it's working in that direction but not yet there, we describe (or show in photos or videos) the conditions you'll find. That way, YOU can decide if it's accessible to YOU. We include contact information so you can discuss expectations and needs.
