3.5 On The Trail

How Exciting! You've made it to the trail!

Trail etiquette is very important on crowded trails like this one. Here are some do's, do not's, and some information to make your experience a breeze.


  • While you're hiking, look for your local White River National Forest Ranger and say hello and ask any questions you may have! (You might leave with a sticker or two).
  • There are places to rest along the entirety of the trail
  • Proper trail etiquette includes: leaving plenty of room between you and the hikers in front of you, when passing; greet people with a hello or howdy!
  • Downhill traffic should yield to uphill traffic.
  • When approaching others from behind, a friendly greeting does wonders to let others know you are coming and common courtesy will always go a long way!
  • Watch for wildlife and do not feed or touch
  • Stay hydrated
  • Remain on the trail
  • Rest on the sides of the trail
