Trails Less Traveled

Trails Less Traveled

The benefits of fresh air and sun are well documented, and a bit of exercise adds an additional boost. Not only is an outdoors break a health advantage for our bodies, but for our minds as well.

During this COVID-19 pandemic, we encourage you to get outside but do so responsibly. Please don't overcrowd trails. Use good judgement when approaching trailheads. If there are several cars, perhaps try another trail or plan for another day. The etiquette of cleaning up after yourself (pack in/pack out) applies now more than ever. If trash cans are full, take your trash with you for proper disposal elsewhere. It's everyone's job to be a good citizen.
