Things You Need to Know When on a Trail

Use Safe Speed

RULE #1: USE SAFE SPEEDS

Whizzing down the trail at top speed can be thrilling and fun, but it can also cause some trail users to feel unsafe or uncomfortable. That’s why the first rule is to use safe speeds. How do you know what’s “safe”? First, check the specific trail’s rules for a speed limit, and if there isn’t one listed, use your best judgement to be respectful of others and yourself (your safety matters, too!) When in doubt, do the squirrel test: Are you going faster than a squirrel? A squirrel scurries at around 15 miles per hour, which is the speed limit for most trails.
