  • Some trails are restricted to pedestrians only
  • Creating new trails without authorization is not allowed
  • Bring sufficient water or a pump filter with you. Stay hydrated!


National-Park Basics

  • Keep dogs on a leash 
  • Motorized vehicles on public roads only
  • Pack out litter
  • Leash your pet
  • Keep food away from wildlife
