Rules of the Trails

We hope you enjoy your visits. Please read and respect the following rules, which are intended to protect the trails for all of us.

  1. Stay on the trail.
  2. Remember that venturing off-trail tramples vegetation and causes erosion.
  3. Bicycles are allowed only on the trails indicated on the map (rust colored trails). Horses, motorcycles, and other vehicles (except wheelchairs) are not allowed on any of the trails.
  4. Do not cut or carve trees, pick flowers, collect seeds, or harass wildlife. You may take berries, nuts, and mushrooms for personal use at your own risk.
  5. Hunting, trapping and firearms are illegal in Hixon Forest and other city parks.
  6. No camping or fires.
  7. Dogs are allowed, but they MUST be on a leash, and owners MUST clean up after them.
