Trail Etiquette Reminder
With more people than ever enjoying the outdoors, it is essential that everyone is practicing proper trail etiquette and is aware of how to share the trail correctly. The following rules can help make your time on the trails more enjoyable and safer for everyone.
- Stay right, pass on the left.
- Announce yourself and establish communication when passing.
- Yield to pedestrians.
- Leave space for bicycles or faster users to pass.
- Keep one ear free of earbuds or headphones to listen for cyclists and other trail users.
- Respect Social Distancing standards and stay at least 6 feet from people who are not part of your residence.
- Stay on designated trails to protect plant communities (even if that means getting muddy).
- Dispose of waste properly – no littering!
- Keep pets leashed and under physical control at all times.
- Pick up and dispose of pet waste.
- Avoid crowded trails and try to enjoy the outdoors at off-peak hours (e.g., 4:30-6:30 pm is a hectic time)
- Stay home if you are feeling sick.
- Be considerate and kind to others. Share a wave and a smile with your fellow trail users.
As of March 26, all parks and trails remain open. Thank you for doing your part to use them safely and responsibly.
