Reduce Recreation Impacts
Responsible use is key to the success of travel management and a sustainable recreation system.
- Stay on designated roads, trails, and areas as identified on the motor vehicle use map.
- Be respectful of other road and trail users.
- Respect property boundaries and know what uses are allowed if you enter non-Forest Service property.
- Do not widen trails by going around obstacles and do not create shortcuts.
- Avoid wet, muddy trails.
- Cross streams only at designated fords.
Planning your visit in advance will help ensure you have a great time.
- Let someone know before you go. Tell a friend or family member where you are going and when you expect to return.
- Cell phones rarely work within the forest.
- Check the forecast before departing and bring equipment for changing conditions (rain gear, warm layers).
- Keep an eye on the sky. Weather can change rapidly at high altitudes. Be at or near treeline before afternoon thunderstorms roll in.
- Some routes are open to mixed uses. Be respectful of other forest visitors and anticipate encountering others. Blind corners and dense vegetation can hide oncoming traffic.
