Rules of the Road/Trail

Trail Etiquette

Vermont has many different types of trails -- hiking trails, mountain biking trails, equestrian trails and shared-use trails.  Help us keep our trails in good shape and respectful places by following the following etiquette.




  • Ride, walk and inline skate on the right side of the path (unless otherwise posted)
  • Ring a bell or say "passing on your left" when passing
  • Obey all traffic laws and signs
  • When bicycling, signal your turns by using your arms
  • When running, walking or bicycling side-by-side, be alert for other path users and get in single file when others approach
  • Wear a helmet when biking, inline skating or skateboarding -- it's not the law in Vermont but it makes good sense!


More information on Vermont trails is available through the Vermont Trails & Greenways Council.
