Trails Management

The regional trail system is managed and maintained cooperatively by individual communities. Each community is responsible for the portion of the trail that travels through their jurisdiction. Through this partnership, existing staff and equipment can be utilized for maintenance instead of spending the limited tax funds available for trails construction.

Please leash and clean up after your dog if using the trail system. Wherever there are signs posted asking you to leash and pick up after your dog tickets can be issued for violations on paved, multi-use trails, and we ask that you respect others when using the trail with your dog.  For more information on Animal Laws, please see the Animal Control page.
