So that everyone can enjoy the trail safely, here are a few guidelines for
Stay to the right.
Bicyclists should yield to walkers.
To avoid conflicts with other users, pass to the left, announcing,
"Passing on your left" before you overtake slower moving traffic.
Please avoid stopping and blocking the path. Step off to the side if you
wish to talk or stop for any other reason.
Leash all pets. "Curb" your dogs.
Please dispose of all trash properly. This is your trail. Keep it clean.
Poison ivy and poison oak are common along many Illinois trails. Avoid
contact with plants unless you’re certain of their species.
Finally, bicyclists should wear a helmet. Three out of four
bicyclist fatalities are due to head injuries--most of which could have been
avoided if the bicyclist had been wearing a helmet. In-line skaters should
also wear safety equipment.
