Today we’re going to talk about trail etiquette
when you’re on the National Forest. We have typical trail etiquette on which types
of users yield to who. So mountain bikes, hikers, motorcycles, ATV’s
they all yield to horses. If you’re out there hiking, and you see those
horses coming, please just step off to the side, the downhill side of the trail and let
those horses by. So if you are out there riding your mountain
bike and come across other users on the trail, just please step to the side, let those users
pass. The reason for that, mountain bikes are quiter
and faster than a lot of the users out on the trail, so you have time to stop and brake
when you are coming around corners, folks don’t know you’re there.
So you have the responsibility on a bike to yield to all those other users out there.
If you’re on a motorcycle or ATV, four wheeler out enjoying the trails,
please yield as well to the horseback riders, to the hikers.
And if you’re on a motorized use please yield to mountain bikes as well.
Just slow down, let them pass. Be safe, be courteous, have fun, and enjoy
the trails.(motorcycle engine noise)
