Spring is here, and with this joyous occasion comes many different trail users in Cook County: bikers, hikers, atv's, and horseback riders, to name a few. There are specific recommendations for Trail Etiquette. Signs are prominent out west, but not here. In an area where we have multi-use non-designated and designated use trails and roads, there are important rules to follow to keep everyone safe. This link has good information from the Leave No Trace website: https://lnt.org/blog/trail-etiquette-101-primer-when-yield-other-trail-users. The basic rules (taken from are:
Hikers, runners and bikers should always yield to horses.
Bikers should yield to hikers and runners
Downhill traffic should yield to uphill traffic.
When approaching others from behind, a friendly greeting does wonders to let others know you are coming and common courtesy will always go a long way!
Thank you from the Sawtooth Mountain Riders Saddle Club
