Indian Grinding Rock State Park
- Roll In Shower
- Accessible Restrooms
- Accessible Parking
- Wildlife viewing
We're at 2400 feet here, which means summer days may be hot. The trails have not been planned for wheelchairs, and many are difficult or unusable, but one paved path leads across the meadow, and paths between facilities are generally hard and smooth. Some routes across the meadow are uncomfortably rough, but may be worth the trouble.
