Sharing BikePed Trails

BikePed trails, like the Arkansas River Trail, are a great local resource and are heavily used by different types of users (Fig. 1).  How can rollerbladers, dog walkers, joggers, children, families with strollers, joggers, bicyclists and walkers all safely and comfortably all use the same space?  The Arkansas River Trail has its own trail etiquette and the Rails to Trails Conservancy has some good general advice:


Figure 1.  Trailheads such as this one at the Two Rivers Bridge see heavy mixed use.  All users should be particularly accommodating in these areas.

1) Use Safe Speeds

2) Keep right, pass left

3) Standing Still?  Stand Aside.

4) Mind Your Pets

5) Be Alert

6) Know and Follow the Rules
