Caution!

  • Always go prepared and use your common sense
  • Always tell someone when and where you are going
  • Many trails are not maintained - use at your own risk
  • Many trails are accessible only by active logging roads requiring 2-way radio communication, or deactivated logging roads requiring four-wheel drive or high-clearance vehicles.
  • Watch for wildlife and avoid areas showing recent signs of black bears, grizzly bears and cougars.
  • Before heading out, check with local contacts to make sure the trails and roads are safe.

Tips for Safety

  • Bring applicable maps, along with a compass or GPS device.
  • Wear appropriate footwear and clothing, and bring sufficient food and water.
  • Carry identification (including name, phone number and pertinent medical information), and record your bicycle serial number
  • Bring a portable phone or other communication device, along with pertinent phone numbers (ie. emergency numbers)
  • Travel with a partner when possible
  • Stay alert, be observant about your surroundings, avoid areas where visibility is poor, and don't wear headsets.
  • Avoid unfamiliar areas when on the trails alone and follow your intuition about unfamiliar people.
  • Trails are shared by a variety of users at the same time. Please be courteous to all users, and remember that pedestrians have the right-of-way. Stay to the right of the trails.
  • Cyclists should pull off the trail when stopping, give a voice, bell, or horn warning when passing others, wear helmets and ride at reasonable speeds.
  • Wear reflective material and carry a whistle or a noisemaker.
  • Where pets are allowed, keep them on a leash and clean up after them.
