A disability rights group is suing the Golden Gate National Recreational Area and National Park Service for failing to provide access to people with disabilities.The class-action lawsuit filed Thursday in federal court claims people with mobility and vision disabilities are being denied access to some of the nation's most beautiful urban parks.

The suit contends the Golden Gate National Recreation Area systematically excludes disabled people from restrooms, visitor centers, trails, pathways and other areas.

A park spokesman says officials are looking into ways to address those access issues.
