TRAIL ETIQUETTE TIPS

Respect the trails
Clean up your litter (pack out what is packed in) and your dog waste; protect the trail environment, e.g. do not remove things that belong on trails or blaze new trails.

Become the eyes and ears of the trail system
Report problems, e.g. washed out bridges or downed trees to the park's maintenance system.

Give back to the trails you use
Get involved with the trails maintenance - Volunteer when help is needed.

Share the trails

  • Cyclists yield to all other trail users.
  • Hikers yield to equestrians.
  • On crowded trails, proceed single file. Slower traffic should keep to the right of the trail; faster users pass on the left.
  • If you choose to wear a headphone set, make sure that the volume neither prevents you from hearing what is happening around you nor disturbs the other trail users.
  • Do not pass on narrow bends. Pass only when you can clearly see the trail and traffic approaching from the opposite direction.
  • When passing other trail users, provide adequate warning and reduce speed. Animals on the trail may act unexpectedly If you are unsure about approaching someone with a horse or dog, ask the handler for guidance.

Tread gently when the trails are muddy
Footprints, bicycle ruts, and hoof prints can damage the trails when they are muddy.

If you come upon a riderless horse
Do not approach the horse if you are uncomfortable with horses - seek professional help. If you choose to approach the horse, speak softly to let it know you are there - do not chase it. Approach it from the side.

If you come upon an injured rider (horse or bicycle), get help immediately!
