IMPORTANT!! There have been several reports of people using trails with dogs off leash. This is unsafe and strictly prohibited. If you encounter someone, please send us an email at email@example.com and provide date, time, location and details. If possible, a pic from your phone will be most helpful. We are working with the Open Space committee to create procedures to report instances to the authorities for follow up.

Please wear blaze orange at all times when on the trail, and try and ride between the hours of 10 am and 4 pm and avoid all day Saturday.
