    1. Hi Sheryl! Great question! We think the Government Spring Trail would be fairly accessible depending on the type of wheelchair to sit by the river and not take the actual trail. Molly Butler Lodge & Restaurant has a wheelchair ramp, it’s an ideal place for breakfast, lunch and dinner (please call them directly for hours when you head up to Greer). We aren’t sure of the accessibility of the scenic lift rides to the top of Sunrise Ski Park during the Summer and Fall season, but this is worth checking directly with them at 1(855) 735-7669. We have three lakes around Greer called Greer Lakes – two of the lakes are called Tunnel or Bunch reservoirs and are fairly flat with some spots that we believe could be accessed by a wheelchair. Please take into account these recommendations are vague as we do not know the severity of the disability as this would need to considered. We look forward to hosting you in Greer!
