Share the Trails

Recently we went for a hike in the Kettle Moraine State Forest in Wisconsin. The John Muir trail system is a great place to go for a hike or for a mountain bike ride. There is a shorter 2.5 mile loop and a longer 10 mile loop with a few other loops in between those distances to choose from. There is a $7 day use fee if you are thinking of checking it out.

When enjoying a recreation site that allows multiple-users on the same trails remember that there is an etiquette that trail-users can use while out there to be courteous to each other. The yield triangle, pictured above, is part of that etiquette. The other part is letting other users know when you are approaching from behind by saying something like, "passing on your left".

A little trail etiquette can go a long way.
