The Obed Wild and Scenic River Visitor Center, located at 208 North Maiden Street in downtown Wartburg, is fully accessible, with handicapped parking available. The various trails and pathways to and around the river, however, should only be attempted by those in moderately good physical health. The exception to this is the Lilly Bluff Overlook Trail, which is on level ground and is handicapped accessible. Sturdy footwear is always recommended when touring the river.
