Despite the benefits of outdoor recreation and its importance to well-being, natural settings are often not readily accessible to people with disabilities. We examined available information related to providing access for people with disabilities by surveying Japanese and United States parks and recreation website. The results can be summarized as follows: 1) Most of U.S. website provided pragmatic guidance information including facilities, trails, access barriers and activity-choices. 2) On the other hand, available information on the Japanese website were strongly biased to facilities related (especially restrooms and parking lots), quite a few guidance on the access barriers and activity-choices. This tendency considered to be results from the lack of user-based monitoring scheme for accessible outdoor recreation settings in Japan.
