Due to the current public-health situation, land managers and trail workers are not out installing the usual closed signs that would protect the trail conditions for summer use.

“Instead, we are asking everyone to simply stay off of muddy trails and roads,” said Blaine County Recreation District Trail Manager Chris Leman. “Get out and get some exercise, but please use good judgment and turn around before the trail or road you are traveling on becomes muddy. Doing so will avoid causing ruts, pocking or other damage that is difficult to repair.”

Regarding the use of trails and trails facilities during the COVID-19 outbreak, in places where there are no restrictions on the use of local parks, trails and open spaces, the BCRD encourages all users to follow these recommendations:

Refrain from using parks or trails if you are exhibiting symptoms.

Follow CDC’s guidance on personal hygiene prior to and during use of parks or trails.

Prepare for limited access to public restrooms or other facilities.

While on trails, warn other users of your presence, and as you pass. Step aside to let others pass.
