Hikers and Stock Trail Courtesy:
Few hikers know that they should move off to the downhill side of the trail when encountering stock. A little conversation while you pass each other may reduce the chances of horses or stock being spooked. Look ahead for a good place to move aside when you are being overtaken. Hikers should accept directions from riders to help their stock safely pass. Riders should allow hikers time to find good footing and a safe place to stand before passing.
