  • Use bicycle lights and reflectors after dusk and before dawn.
  • Cyclists should use hand signals to alert others when they intend to turn.
  • Trail speed limit is 15 m.p.h.
  • Stay in the right lane.
  • Ring a bell or five a clear, verbal warning by saying "passing" to nearby trail users before passing.
  • "Leave No Trace." Keep trails litter-free by carrying out anything you carry in.
  • Gas powered motorized vehicles are prohibited on trails. Motorized wheelchairs and electric powered bicycles are permitted.
  • Keep all pets on a leash within four feet.
  • Pick up after pet waste.
