Tips / Safety

When traveling to one of our country’s national parks, it’s important to be respectful of the land. Follow these tips for a fun and courteous experience.


Be Mindful of the Trail

Follow the signage on the trails and don’t veer off. Stepping off the trail can disturb the local plant and wildlife. Try to avoid talking on your phone or being too loud and disruptive toward wildlife and others on the trail.


Share the Trails

Many trails allow for hiking, cycling and horseback riding, so pay attention and give the proper right of way. Hikers descending a trail should give right of way to those ascending. Typically, bicyclists should yield to hikers and horseback riders. Hikers should also yield to horseback riders. It’s always nice to greet people you meet along the trail.


Respect Wildlife

Keep your distance from any wildlife you encounter on the trails. Check the park regulations before your visit. If you’re visiting a park with bears nearby, read these tips from the National Park Service for staying safe.


Leave No Trace

As much as possible, avoid disrupting anything on the trails. If you bring anything with you, take it with you when you leave. Don’t leave trash on the trails.

European Commission Outlines Plan to Reopen Europe

People need a “chance to get some well-needed rest, relaxation and fresh air.” This is a sentiment we all likely share, as does the European Commission, the executive branch of the European Union. The EC included that phrase when it released its plan to help reopen Europe following the COVID-19 global pandemic. While most EU borders remain closed to international travel until at least mid-June, the EC’s plan starts with inter-Europe travel, and are non-binding recommendations and guidelines. European countries still have the final decision, so travelers are advised to check the restrictions of the countries they plan to visit. According to the EC, “blanket restrictions of free movement are replaced by targeted measures.”
