User Guidelines for Multi-Use Trails:

Trails (or paths) for non-motorized use have become very popular resulting in congested and potentially hazardous situations. Regardless of whether you are bicycling, walking, jogging, or skating, if you follow the same set of rules as everyone else, your trip will be safer and more enjoyable.

Be Courteous.

All trail users, including bicyclists, joggers and walkers should be respectful of other users regardless of their mode, speed or level of skill.

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.

Keep Right.

Stay as near to the right side of the trail as is safe, except when passing another user.

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.
