New to the trail or just need a refresh on the rules?
There are no real written rules for hiking except specific rules or laws for the land your trail crosses. Mostly those are the same no matter whether you are in a city park or National Forest. It is important to read the trailhead information and all signs along the way. Some hikers that are just starting out cannot comprehend just how many other people use the trails.

Be the better person and make good choices out there!
