Travel responsibly on routes and trails or in permitted areas.

  • Stay on designated routes. Don’t blaze a new trail or cut across switchbacks.
  • Travel only in areas open to your type of vehicle.
  • Drive over obstacles, instead of going around them, to avoid widening the trail.
  • Cross streams only at designated crossings.
  • If you must cross a soft or muddy area, go slowly to avoid spinning your wheels.
  • Respect closed gates and regulatory signs. Do not exceed the posted speed limit.
