Trail Etiquette

Basic Trail Rules

The trail is designed for bike and foot traffic. No motorized vehicles except wheelchairs.

Bridges will not support horses.

Leave the trail’s beauty untouched for the next user to enjoy.

Leashed dogs are welcome, but clean up after them.

Carry in, carry out! Dispose of trash and dog bags responsibly.

Be respectful of other users, regardless of their mode, speed or level of skill.

Cyclists yield to pedestrians, obey stop signs and be careful on tight curves and hills.

Do not block the trail. Listen for audible signals and allow faster travelers to pass safely.

Supervise children, especially near the road and at water crossings.
