It is important for Friends of Sleeping Bear Dunes to have advanced notice of track chair use. This will allow us to arrange for one of our Track Chair Hosts to meet you, provide you with training on the use of the track chair, and complete the required forms.
The Track Chair Host will accompany you on your hike. The Track Chair Host is there to help you as needed, but will allow privacy for you and your group. We require that you maintain visual contact with the Host while using the track chair.
Reservations are required at least one week in advance. The required instruction and waiver forms can be viewed here: Track Chair Instructions-Waivers-Liabiity-Checkout 20180905.
While using the track chair, you will be on trail areas without quick access to vehicles or medical backup. Please be aware of this when planning your track chair hike. Please be certain to bring medication and medical equipment you need. Oxygen, ventilators, and other equipment and medication must be sufficient for the entire hike.
This reservation form should be filled out for the person who will be using the track chair.
After you click the SUBMIT button, our Track Chair Coordinator will contact you to make arrangements.
