Trail Safety is #1

All Trail Users

  • Respect other trail users, private property, and trail property
  • Travel on the right side of the trail
  • Move completely off the trail when stopped
  • Observe road crossing and other signage
  • Never enter a crosswalk until clear of oncoming traffic in both directions
  • Do not use earbuds that impede your hearing of other trail users
  • Pay attention to your surroundings, not your cellphone
  • Use short leashes and clean up after your pet
  • Notify emergency services in case of an accident or incident. For police or fire call 911
  • Use care around horses

Pedestrians, Runners and Personal Mobility Device Users

  • Stay to the right, no more than 2 abreast; allow room for others to safely pass
  • Maintain a straight and predictable line
  • Do not stop or turnaround without looking ahead AND behind you

Bicycle and Other Wheeled Device Users (skates, scooters, ellipticals, etc)

  • Racing or riding in a reckless manner is prohibited. No pace lines.
  • Always give pedestrians the right of way.
  • Pass cautiously on the left single file when safe to do so - clear sight line, no oncoming trail users; while always giving an audible warning, for example, “Passing on your left” or ringing your bell.
  • Obey posted bike speed limits, never exceeding 15 MPH on the Trails
  • Use extra caution around children and congested areas
  • Use bike racks and always lock your bike
  • Electric bicycles are permitted on all paved County Park trails and upon authorized natural surface trails, unless otherwise signed. Please obey speed limits and follow our visitor ethics.
