Trail etiquette: please respect our trails and the nature surrounding them.
- Take only photos. Enjoy the trails! Leave all rocks, fossils, horns, antlers, wildflowers, nests and other natural or historic objects where they are for others to enjoy.
- Respect the trail. Leave the wilderness as you found it, don’t break branches or cause damage. If out with a dog, keep them on a leash and pick up and properly dispose of their waste.
- Share the trail. Trails are shared by hikers, trail runners, mountain bikers, and wildlife alike. Respect other users and yield the right of way to ensure safety. Use extra caution when cycling, cyclists can quickly and quietly startle wildlife. Keep children within one arm’s reach on and around ice.
