In British Columbia's Manning Park, six teams prepare to trek. This is no ordinary wilderness expedition. The captains of each team are on wheelchairs. This is "Access Challenge" that pits teamwork and technology against the unpredictable forces of nature. The challenges faced in the wilderness are perhaps less monumental than those that have already been overcome. "Access Challenge" weaves the drama of a mountain expedition with the personal journeys and challenges of its three participants.
