BE AWARE OF THE WEATHER!

Trail condition change with the weather.

Wet stone and mud can become very slippery to bikes, feet and horses.

Some trails are shut down in bad weather to keep you safe and to reduce erosion and rutting.

Use sound judgment when deciding if the weather is good for the trail you are about to venture down.

 

 

Basic Trail Etiquette For ALL Trails:

Bikers yield to Hikers and Equestrian.

Hikers yield to Equestrian.

Equestrian keeps horse under control.

 

 

While enjoying a hike along the trails, remember that many of the trails are near water and can become a hazard very quickly.

Please be aware of your surroundings while hiking, biking or horse back riding on the trails.

Always have a plan and let someone know where you are going.

We want you to return home alive and well after a great day in the sun.
