The path from the parking lot is a flat, gravel trail and it is about 400 feet from the lot to the beginner's range. We have one adaptive bow which participants may hold or we can provide a stand. This bow uses a trigger release. If anyone wants to take a bow out on the 3D course, that trail is about 0.5 miles and uneven mulch surface.
