Please also remember when crossing cross country ski trails to cross perpendicular, yield to skiers, and to not stop blocking their tracks.Have you ever wondered who has the right of way on the trails? Yes, there is etiquette on the trails that can make it safer for everyone sharing the trails.

Hikers vs. Bikers
Since mountain bikes are considered more maneuverable than hikers’ legs, bikers are generally expected to yield to hikers on the trail. However, because those mountain bikes are often moving considerably faster than said legs, it’s usually easier for hikers to yield the right of way—especially if a mountain biker is huffing and puffing up a tough incline. A biker should never expect a hiker to yield, though.

Because mountain bikers move faster, hikers should also be aware of their surroundings on shared trails. Conscientious mountain bikers will call out as they come down steep slopes or blind switchbacks, and should also let you know if there are other bikers following them.

Hikers vs. Horses
When you’re hiking/running, yield to horses on the trail, since horses can have a harder time maneuvering the trail.

Uphill vs. Downhill
The official rule is that people going uphill have the right of way. In general, hikers heading up an incline have a smaller field of vision.

Passing
If you’re about to pass someone from behind, a simple “on your left” is often the best way to announce your presence.

Groups
Trail etiquette is even more important when you’re hiking in a group. Always hike single-file, never taking up more than half the trail space, and stay on the trail itself.

Remember, when in doubt, just treat other hikers, bikers, runners and equestrians the same way you’d treat the trail itself—with respect.

We were told 20/30 years ago that whenever experiencing horses on the trail to be sure on the downhill side of the horses. Supposedly there, We represent less of a “threat” to them.

I spoke to your spouse, kids, dog, boss, and parents they said you have the all-clear to join us for some trail maintenance this week or in one of our upcoming trail days.

Not only will you be helping out but you'll burn off some of the effects of your long weekend overindulgence!

Why so many Terwillegar trail days instead of spreading the love across town?

I will try very hard to get out there as i am far northeast end. But would love to come learn n help.

Love Child - the creek crossing needs major work

Bryce Koperski out some love in

You know if there were some trail maintenance days during the daytime next week I could be available. I will try to make it to the evening ones though. Haven't don't any trail work in Terwilliger since the late 80s.

We've seen lots of posts about flat tires making the round lately. Come and earn some sweet, sweet trail Karma by helping us do some trail maintenance and avoid those flats (or just go tubeless...). Jedi Trimmer Matt will be leading crews into October and he would love to see you out!

In particular we have six spots remaining as of right now for this Thursda, so act fast if you're interested.
