Trail Etiquette

The Legacy Trail is a multi-use, non-motorized trail that supports a wide diversity of users. You are likely to encounter people of all ages and levels of fitness: walkers, rollerbladers, skateboarders, elliptical cyclists, two-, three-, and four-wheel bicyclists, dog walkers, wildlife viewers, and anglers. All have equal rights to use the trail.

Be Alert.  Be Courteous.  Be Predictable.

Share the Legacy!

Pedestrians:

  • Walk on the far right side of the trail and walk no more than two abreast.
  • Dogs must be on a six-foot maximum leash. Best practice is to have the dog on your right side, between you and the gravel/grass side of the path. Dogs on your left side should be kept on a shorter leash and never allowed to stray beyond the center line of the trail.
  • Don’t block the trail.  Step off the trail for watching wildlife.

Bicyclists:

  •  Cyclists must always yield to pedestrians.
  • Wear a helmet for protection, and carry some form of identification, emergency contact information, and a cell phone.
  • Provide an audible warning (e.g., ring your bicycle bell or announce “on your left” before passing other cyclists or pedestrians).
  • Keep your speed low in crowded areas. Remain in control and be prepared to stop if the unexpected happens.
  • Stop at all intersections, especially at crosswalks, and look in both directions before entering the intersection.
  • No racing or drafting.
  • Form a single file line when passing or approaching other trail users.
  • Please consider turning off your flashing bike lights when on the trail and not needed. In addition to being annoying to others, flashing lights can trigger migraines and seizures in susceptible individuals.
