Don’t use wet trails ~ If you are leaving prints (hoof, tire, or boot), the trail is too wet to use. When approaching muddy spots, go through the center of the mud to keep the trail narrow.
Stay on the trail ~ Do not go off trail (even to pass), create new trails, or cut switchbacks. Narrow trails mean less environmental impact and happier critters.
Respect ~ It’s a simple concept: if you offer respect, you are more likely to receive it. All user groups have rights and responsibilities to the Arizona Trail, and to each other. Smile. Greet. Nod. Every user on the trail is a fellow nature lover. Be friendly and expect to see other folks around the corner.
