Rules & Trail Etiquette
Remember to be courteous and aware as you enjoy the trails throughout Draper. When going downhill on any trail, it is courteous to yield to all uphill traffic, while bikers should yield to all other users in any direction.
If you stop to enjoy the views, always step off the trail. If you are approaching a horse, let the horse and rider know you are coming by vocalizing your presence. This will help keep the horse from being spooked. Watch the video for more trail etiquette tips.
