Affectionately described as "a cross between a wheelbarrow and a rickshaw," the TrailRider is actually a precision-made vehicle, engineered to the highest specifications.
Its versatility and reliability are established elsewhere on this site, but the TrailRider design also allows folding, so that it can be transported in a hatchback, SUV or minivan. The TrailRider weighs 23 kg, and folds down to a size of 172 cm x 82 cm x 61 cm. In addition, The TrailRider can accommodate anyone over 1.2m tall - an insert is used to make it more comfortable for riders under 1.5 ft.
More information on the TrailRider and access for all abilities is available on the Parks Victoria web site.

Bushwalking Victoria's advocacy efforts aim to proactively influence decisions that impact on bushwalking and bushwalkers in Victoria, by engaging with key decision makers and land managers such as Parks Victoria and the Department of Environment, Land, Water and Planning (DELWP)to ensure that bushwalking issues and opportunities are understood and considered when policies and decisions are made that impact on the bushwalking community in Victoria.
