Question

What are some Trail Safety and Etiquette rules?

Answer

There are several ways you can be safe on the trails. Some ideas are:

  • Always wear a helmet when riding a bicycle.
  • Use bicycle lights and reflectors after dusk and before dawn.
  • Cyclists should use hand signals to alert others when they intend to turn.
  • The trail speed limit is 15 m.p.h.
  • Stay to the right.
  • Ring a bell or give a clear, verbal warning by saying "passing" to nearby trail users before passing.
  • "Leave No Trace". Keep trails litter-free by carrying out anything you carry in.
  • Gas powered motorized vehicles are prohibited on trails. Motorized wheelchairs and electric powered bicycles are permitted.
  • Keep all pets on a leash within four feet.
  • Pick up after pet waste.
  • Do not disturb wildlife.
