Christian Bagg demonstrates his invention, the Icon Explore, an electric-assist tricycle that enables people with disabilities to get onto the trails.
Now everyone can explore the great outdoors. This is such an incredible machine and the first of its kind. Joining us for a demonstration was the inventor himself, Christian Bagg. His passion for getting people with disabilities out into the wilderness was truly contagious.

"I've been waiting for this moment for 22 years. That's how long it's taken me to perfect this e-trike, and I've never seen anyone not have a great time riding it," Bagg said.
When we first arrived and met with Aaron, he told us the park is all about making this beautiful natural place accessible to everyone. I wasn't exactly sure what he meant, but as the day went by, it became apparent. The park is easily accessible to all. The roads make it easy for cars to traverse, there's a variety of hiking trails for all levels of fitness, there are programs for getting kids involved in the outdoors, and the e-trike that enables people with disabilities to enjoy the forest trails.
