The Hemlock Grove Boardwalk and Picnic Area in Glacier National Park has been designed to barrier free standards. An all terrain wheelchair is available for loan at the Illecillewaet Campground welcome station. During the spring and winter, the Rogers Pass Discovery Centre is the only facility in Mount Revelstoke and Glacier National Parks that meets barrier-free standards.
