Trail Etiquette

Stay on designated roads and trails and do not enter private property; respect closures.

Yield the right-of-way to hikers and equestrians. Announce your approach well in advance.

Stand off to the side as oncoming horses pass and talk to riders as they go by. Do not attempt to pass equestrians until you have alerted the riders and asked them for permission.

Park off the trail, even in remote areas, to keep trail clear for other users or emergency vehicles.
