Tread Lightly! At a Distance

Heading outdoors to get a break from being in the house?

An adaptation of the TREAD Principles by Tread Lightly!

We've adapted the T.R.E.A.D Principles for social distancing outdoors to align with the recommendations from the CDC to help slow the spread of the disease and maintain physical and emotional health. Please help us keep the outdoors and enthusiasts healthy by following these easy guidelines.

Travel Responsibly

Stay close to home and utilize less popular trails. If parking lots and trail heads are crowded, look for alternatives. If visiting a park or trail, remember to stay on designated routes. 

Respect Rights of Other's

Maintain a safe distance (6 feet minimum) from other recreationists. If you are feeling sick, stay home. Remember to keep hands clean. Keep sanitizer available in your vehicle or on your person. Avoid touching your face after being in public spaces. 

Educate Yourself

Make sure your facilities are open before you head out and check for any travel restrictions. Follow local, state, and Federal guidelines at regarding restrictions on group sizes. To prevent overcrowding and protect people, many trails, parks and visitor centers are being shut down temporarily.

Avoid Sensitive Areas

Keep members of local communities safe and helathy by avoiding places that are heavily affected by the virus or could be easily overwhelmed by medical emergencies. 

Do Your Part

Make sure to pack out what you pack in to keep places healthy and accessible for other users.
