Trash Your Trash
Keep our trails clean. If you pack it in, then pack it out. Biodegradable materials, such as orange peels, apple cores, food scraps, and mutt mitts take years to break down. Let’s all do our part to take care of the environment.
Your dog is your responsibility. Always make sure to keep it under your control. Dogs must always be on leash. Regulations can change depending on location. Adhere to signage wherever you are.
Dog poop is a health hazard. It also increases the nitrogen in the soil around the trail, giving the advantage to weeds over the native plants that have naturally evolved in the area.
Weather in the spring and fall is critical for trails. The freeze-thaw cycle results in a soft surface that we want to protect from damage. When a soft trail is used too early, it results in ruts and erosion causing a surface that is inconsistent and difficult to maneuver. Please do your part to protect trails by turning around when you encounter muddy areas.
