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.
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.
