  • Please wear a mask when out on the trails and in park areas when you cannot practice social distancing.

  • Warn other trail users of your presence and as you pass to allow proper distance and step off trails to allow others to pass, keeping minimum recommended distances at all times. Signal your presence with your voice, bell or horn.
