Understanding Shared-Use Trail Etiquette can make Hiking, Biking, and Riding Trails More Enjoyable for Everyone


If you’re headed out on one of Arizona State Parks and Trails many shared-use trails, it’s important that you understand trail etiquette — and share your knowledge with others. Good trail management combined with user education means a better time for everyone who uses Arizona’s trails. Not all trails are shared use; some are only for hikers, for example, but when you head out, please practice these principles. If you’re taking a first-timer out, whether it’s hiking, mountain biking, or horseback riding, it’s your responsibility to teach them. Someone educated you, so please pass it on.
