What's accessible via wheelchair (actually a Segway?)? Would love to do some trails. Can handle anything except steps and sand.

    If you Google "accessibility" + the national park name, you'll find the corresponding page for all of them. They're all required to have it per the ADA since they're federally-funded.

    I just came back from Jasper and was informed by the Japser Rafts rower that people in wheel chairs had taken the float down the Athabasca River! I don't know if we are talking about the same park, though? Hope this helps!

    Sprague Lake and Bear Lake Loop - On both I would suggest getting there early in the morning to get spectacular pictures. Both of these are on the east side of the park.
    Lily Lake Loop - I believe is completely paved - it's about 5-6 miles outside of Estes Park on Highway 7.
    If you're planning on making the scenic drive across Trail Ridge Road - which is a must - stop at the Tundra Communities Trail. Traveling from east to west it's just before you get to the visitor's center on the right. There are some cool "mushroom rock" formations there. That's a totally paved trail as well.
