Recreation Code of Ethics

  1.  I will respect the rights of all recreationists to enjoy the beauty of the outdoors. I will respect public and private property.
  2.  I will park considerately, taking no more space than needed, without blocking other vehicles, and without impeding access to trails.
  3.  I will keep to the right when meeting another recreationist. I will yield the right-of-way to traffic moving uphill.
  4.  I will slow down and use caution when approaching or overtaking another recreationist.
  5.  I will respect designated areas, trail-use signs and established trails.
  6.  When stopping I will not block the trail.
  7.  I will not disturb wildlife. I will avoid areas posted for the protection of feeding wildlife.
  8.  I will pack out everything I pack in, and will not litter.
  9.  I realize that my destination objective and travel speed should be determined by my equipment, ability, the terrain, weather, and the traffic on the trail. In case of an emergency, I will volunteer assistance.
  10.  I will not interfere with or harass others. I recognize that people judge all trail users by my actions.
  11.  As a motorized trail user, I will pull off the trail and stop my engine when encountering horse back riders (it is also a good idea to take off your helmet and greet the riders).
