Activities that are “Wheelchair Accessible for Most” is everything listed within the ADA definition of accessible except for paved routes. While recreating, realistically, not everyone needs this narrow definition.
Why
The Americans with Disabilities Act (ADA) definition of wheelchair accessible for businesses and travelers is very narrow – paved routes, level terrain, minimal grades, no stairs, etc. and is intended for individuals with no lower leg mobility. 
Nowadays there are so many different types of seated mobility assistance devices (manual, power chairs, collapsible, ultralight, scooters, etc.) and the skill set of the user, the definition of “wheelchair accessible” may be too restrictive for most, especially outdoors. If you do require paved routes, you can indicate that within any of the mobility groups.
Exploryst will provide as much information as possible to help you make the best decision for yourself and your family.
The Americans with Disabilities Act (ADA) Title III prohibits discrimination on the basis of disability in the activities of places of public accommodations (businesses that are generally open to the public, such as restaurants, movie theaters, and recreation facilities) and requires newly constructed or altered places of public accommodation—as well as commercial facilities to comply with the ADA Standards.
Exploryst defines Mild Activity as things to do that can be completed by an individual who is able to move, using their legs, independently or with the use of a mobility device (crutches, walkers, etc.) for minimal stairs, shorter distances, or if there are longer distances, there are opportunities to rest and/or sit down. This could also include those with small children and women during late pregnancy.
Examples – Bus tours, neighborhood tours without curb cuts, independent movement required, trails with minimal rocks and tree roots, some uneven terrain, etc.

Exploryst defines Stroller-Friendly as things to do where a 3-wheel jogging stroller or adult push chair will be able to be operated or able to be transported during the activity. This allows families to find things to do where the terrain is somewhat uneven. The use of foldable strollers for listed things to do may not be suitable during all occasions (weather conditions, number of participants, size of tour vehicle, etc.).
The Stroller-Friendly option is available within Choose Your Own Adventure and as a filterable selection within all of the categories.
