Please review and follow the Trail Courtesy Triangle:
Mountain bikers should ride only on established trails, should yield to hikers and horses, should avoid moss clusters adjacent to some ‘slick rock’ trail segments, and should avoid the few trails with the biking symbol marked out (most of these are short segments leading to waterfalls, etc).
Simple communication with other users will help DSRF avoid user conflict issues on our shared trails.
When overtaking another user (ESPECIALLY EQUESTRIANS!), communicate early enough to avoid surprising that user, and ask permission to pass. This is especially important when another user is new to the Forest. Similarly, when meeting another user (ESPECIALLY EQUESTRIANS!), slow (or stop) and communicate with the user before passing. Maintain a safe speed, especially when near highly visited areas such as waterfalls, when approaching intersections and where line of sight is limited. You are likely to meet other bikers, horses and hikers. All trails are two-way. A little courtesy goes a long way toward making our Forest experiences great for everyone who shares DuPont’s trails.
