Walking

Bicycling
  • Bicyclists are considered vehicle operators; they are required to obey the same rules of the road as other vehicle operators, including obeying traffic signs, signals, and lane markings.
  • Use a front light and a red reflector or flashing rear light, and use retro-reflective tape or markings on equipment and clothing.
  • Bicyclists should yield to hikers and horse back riders.
  • Stay to the right unless passing.
  • Do not block the trail - pull off the trail when stopping.
  • Slow down when approaching other trail users or street crossings.
  • Anticipate riders around corners.
  • Use a bell or horn, or call out when passing others.
  • When cycling on street to a trail, cyclists must ride in the same direction as traffic.
