Elevating Innovation: Elevator World Awards Project of the Year to Hill Hiker, Inc.

Bringing ADA accessibility to one of Maryland's most beautiful parks with custom inclined elevator system.

Inclined Elevator Project of the Year

Elevator World has announced their annual Project of the Year awards and has named Hill Hiker’s Patuxent River Park Observation Tower renovation it's inclined elevator Project of the Year. Voted on by experienced industry professionals and experts, The Elevator World Project of the Year awards are the most prestigious honors in the elevator industry. Projects were judged on their innovation, creativity, advanced technology, and overall quality of presentation. Based on the criteria, it was easy to see why Hill Hiker’s Patuxent River Park project was honored.

The project was a true labor of love for the Hill Hiker, Inc. team. One of the most beautiful native wonders in Maryland, the park includes over 7000 acres of riverside parkland that boasts several wildlife habitats and historical structures and markers. Replacing the existing antiquated observation tower required a plan that was both ADA accessible and maintained the organic qualities of the park. Hill Hiker, Inc. was able to integrate an inclined elevator system both structurally sound and aesthetically attractive, allowing guests of all ages and mobility levels a safe way to enjoy the lush scenic vistas of the land.
