  • Always ride, ski, run and walk in control. Bikers yield to all pedestrian users. Skiers yield to hikers and snowshoers. Climbing traffic has the right of way. Please stop in a safe visible spot off the trail.
  • Stay off trails when the ground is soft, especially in winter and spring. Avoid leaving deep footprints and ruts. Help with maintenance. Build or change only with permission and planning with the Riders' trail crew.
  • Respect landowners, neighbors, and other visitors. Trail use is dependent on positive landowner relationships and respectful sharing.
  • Park in legal areas. 
  • Due to livestock, food production, user safety and water/habitat quality concerns, please keep pets leashed under control at all times and clean up after them. 
  • Leave no trace. Pack it in, pack it out. No camping or fires, unless otherwise permitted by the landowner. 
  • Remember to share gracefully, smile widely and appreciate often.
