To celebrate National Trails Day, June 7, I thought I’d revisit the topic of trail etiquette.

u Before venturing out, let someone know where you are going and how long you plan to be gone.• Make sure you are knowledgeable about the trail and have the matched level of expertise, and not just the ego, to navigate it safely. Novices should begin on easier trails. Groups should pick a route for the least experienced of the bunch. If your own ability has outgrown the trails and puts others less-skilled in danger, research an alternate setting that complements your experience level.
