MULTI-USE TRAIL ETIQUETTE

 

OGDEN NORDIC Grooms winter trails for HUMAN POWERED use.   We have trails specifically for  cross country skiers (both Classic and Skate techniques) and separate trails for snowshoeing and fat biking.  GROOMING COSTS A LOT OF MONEY, and TIME, so we ask that all users respect the trails and respect other users.  The following are guidelines for RESPECTING other users and for SAFETY.

  • ALL USERS: Do not approach wildlife (moose) - if they do not move, turn around or pass giving them wide berth.

    • DIAL 911 for emergencies

  • WALKING OR RUNNING without snowshoes is NOT permitted.   Footprints left on the trails can be dangerous to other users, and can contribute to accidents.

  • Skiers:

    • Yield to downhill traffic and faster skiers

    • Step to the side of the trail when stopping

  • Snowshoers:

    • Enjoy the snowshoe trails

    • IF you have to cross the ski trails, avoid the classic ski tracks

    • IF you find yourself on a ski trail, stay off to the side and find your way back to the snowshoe trails

  • Fat Bikers:

    • Enjoy the fat bike single track trails groomed specifically for your use

    • Minimum 3.75 inch tire

    • Bikes yield to other users - use caution when crossing other trails

    • Please no skidding, leaving ruts or post holing

    • If the trails are soft, turn back - if you are sinking more than 1" turn back

    • Bikes are ONLY allowed on the main road in very FIRM conditions, do NOT leave ruts.

  • Dogs on Trails:

    • Keep dogs on Leash at all times

    • Do not allow dogs to approach wildlife

    • Always pick up after your dog
