 Trail Etiquette - Trail users should respect the environment and their trails by following these user ethics:

  • Educate yourself by reviewing trail maps and regulations and following signs.
  • Respect the rights of others.
  • When cyclists encounter hikers, slow down to their speed, or stop and pull over.  If approaching from the rear, greet them or sound a handlebar bell; then pass slowly. 
  • If approaching equestrians from the front, ALWAYS stop, pull over and let them pass. If approaching from the rear, ask them which is the best way to proceed. Ride slowly or walk around the horse and rider.
  • Use designated trails approved for your particular activity.
  • Stay on the trail treadway.
  • Enjoy the flora, fauna, geological, and archaeological wonders, and leave them for others to appreciate.
  • Avoid excessively wet or muddy trails. Waiting 24 hours after a rain event is recommended.
  • Ride in small groups, keeping them smaller than five if possible.
  • Wear a helmet.  Park staff appreciate your concern for your own safety, as well as for others.



Park hours are 5:00 a.m. - 10:30 p.m. daily.
