Trail Etiquette

Avoid snowshoeing on existing ski tracks. Hike to the side of such tracks so cross-country skiers don’t have to re-track the trail.

Give the right of way to skiers. They will have the least amount of control. If you are snowshoeing or skiing, be aware of snowmobiles as they are likely to be moving fast and may have trouble avoiding you.

Don’t leave your litter behind. Just like in the summer, it is important to pack out your litter.
