Please help make the trail safe for everyone by using the following guidelines:
All trail users, including bicyclists, joggers, walkers, wheelchairs, skateboarders,
roller bladers, should be respectful of other users regardless of their mode, speed
or level of skill.
Travel in a consistent and predictable manner. Always look behind before changing
positions on the trail.
Don't Block The Trail.
When in a group or with your pets, use no more than half the trail so as not to block
the flow of other users.
Stay as near to the right side of the trail as is safe, except when passing another
Pass On The Left.
Pass others, going your direction, on their left. YIELD TO SLOWER AND ON-COMING TRAFFIC.
Use hand signals to alert those behind you of your moves. Look ahead and back to
make sure the lane is clear before you pull out and pass. Pass with ample separation
and do not move back to the right until safely past. REMEMBER: CHILDREN AND PETS
CAN BE UNPREDICTABLE.
When stopping, move off of the trail. Beware of others approaching you from behind
and make sure they know you are pulling over.
Give Audible Warning BEFORE Passing.
Give a clear signal by using voice, bell or horn before passing. Give the person
you are passing time to respond. Watch for their reaction. So that you can hear these
safety signals, please don't wear dual ear headphones on the trail.
Obey All Traffic Signs And Signals.
Use extra caution where trails cross streets. Stop at all signs and intersections
and be cautious when crossing driveways. When entering or crossing a trail yield
to traffic on the trail.
Be Respectful Of Private Property.
Trails are open to the public, but often the land on the side of the trail is private
property. Please respect all property rights and stay on trail and berm.
Clean Up Litter.
Do not leave glass, paper, cans, plastic, or any other debris on or near a trail.
If you drop something, please remove it immediately. If you do find litter please
help by picking it up.
Please! Do not block farm equipment access if parking along road.
Due Care And Caution!
