AY greenway_walkersTrail Rules & Regulations

  • No intoxicants on premises, bikes on posted trails, horseback riding, motorized or off-road vehicles (ORVs), smoking, or camping (except at Hagan-Stone Park)
  • All pets must be on a leash. This is a City ordinance and extends to all Greensboro Trails.
  • All trails are open from sunrise to sunset, unless otherwise posted.

Trail Etiquette

  • Pay attention to signs, as some trails are restricted to pedestrians only.
  • Be courteous and respectful of other trail users, regardless of their mode of transportation, speed or skill level.
  • Yield when entering or crossing trails. When crossing a trail at uncontrolled points, yield to traffic on the trail.
  • Keep right; pass on left. Stay as close to the right-hand side of the trail as is safe, except when passing. Faster traffic is responsible for yielding to slower, oncoming traffic.
  • Give a ring or call out when passing. Bikes should be equipped with a bell to alert other trail users that you are about to pass.
  • Bicyclists must yield to pedestrians. Travel in a consistent, predictable manner. Check behind you before you change position on the trail.
  • Do not block the trail. When in a group (including pets), use no more than half the trail, so that others may pass.
  • Leave no trace. Take anything you bring onto the trail back out with you.
  • Know the trail design limitations. If your speed or style endangers other users, find alternate routes better suited to your needs. Selecting the right location is safer and more enjoyable for all concerned.
  • Be quiet on nature trails. To increase your chances of spotting animals, be quiet so as not to scare them away.
  • Stay on the trail for your own safety. This will also help protect plants and animals that live near the trail and help keep you from getting lost.
