Share the Path – Respect all visitors, remembering that both hard and soft surfaces are open to all. Those on “wheels” may prefer the hard paved surface and those using their “heels” may prefer the soft crushed rock surface, however this is not a requirement. Foot traffic on the hard paved surface should please give way so bicycles may pass.
Run, Walk or Ride in a Single File – Even if you are in a group, proceed in single-file. This helps to keep the paths and trails clear of congestion and reduces the chances of an accident.
Pass on the Left – When passing from behind, make sure you announce your presence by ringing a bell or saying “on your left”.
Obey the 15mph Speed Limit – The path system and trails are not designed for high speed biking or speed skating, and too much speed can be a hazard to you and those around you.
Pull Completely off the Trail If You Need to Stop – By pulling off the trail, you are less likely to interrupt the flow of trail traffic, get hit by a passing trail user or cause an accident.
Keep Pets on a Leash – Pets are not allowed to be off-leash within Forest Park. It is best to keep them to your right, completely off the path system
Wear a Helmet If Biking, Skating or Rollerblading – We recommend that children under 18 years of age wear a helmet, and it is a good idea for adults as well.
No Motorized Traffic – Motorized traffic is not permitted on the path system or trails. (Exceptions include motorized wheelchairs and park and security vehicles.)
Obey All Traffic Signs – Yield to traffic signs and follow any detours. Watch for car traffic, particularly where it crosses the path system.
