Trail Etiquette in the Time of COVID 19

Trail Etiquette

 

We are all adjusting to the new “not normal”, fortunately, there are still some things that we can do to keep us feeling healthy and connected to the outdoors. Here at Cofo Provisions, we are lucky enough to live in an area with lots of open space and trails for hiking.  It might look a little different, as many trail organizations have taken precautions to adhere to COVID 19 mandated ordinances, but at least we are walking in the sunshine. 

It can be challenging to know what to do in these uncertain times. Some counties require masks, others require social distancing. Check with your local government municipality to see what they require on the open trails. Here are a few tips from the Open Space Mountain Parks website here in Boulder, CO. 

Always bring a face covering when you leave home and maintain 6 feet of distance: 
  • You will need a face covering to visit Boulder’s open space trails and parks. Always bring one with you when you leave home.
  • Place it over your nose and mouth when you can’t maintain 6 feet of distance from others.
  • Wear it around your neck or wrist when no one else is around.
  • Parents should help children older than 2 years old properly wear a face covering.
  • Help protect vulnerable community members and each other. 
Don’t forget: Keep the space in open space! Always stay at least 6 feet from others you don’t live with or haven’t agreed to have close contact with.

Please follow these other responsible recreation reminders:

  • Visit OSMPTrails.org to see current trail closures, historical data that shows areas of high and low open space use, and trails that are wider than 6 feet. See when trails are busiest through our Visitation Data Explorer.
  • Protect first responders. Know your limits and don’t take unnecessary risks. 
  • Plan ahead and consider recreating closer to home as parking is extremely limited.
  • Remember: Leave No Trace! Pick up trash and dog waste. Stay on the trail and walk through mud. Step off if you need to maintain a distance but quickly step back on the trail.
  • For more responsible recreation reminders, please visit the Covid-19 Recovery page.
