Trail etiquette is important for all the outdoors people to assure we are being respectful and diplomatic on the trails.  Represent your outdoor recreation as a mountain biker, runner, hiker, backpacker, equine rider or hunter.  The important thing to remember is that we all have love for the outdoors, which means we are not that different!

 

Check out the podcast The Hunting Collective EP:73 to learn more about trail etiquette coming from a hunting perspective.

Don't forget to stop and enjoy the play!!

"Play isn't something separate from the daily grind of life.  It is not something to finally get to when work ends.  Rather, play like music, is a force that we feel in our bones and that whispers in our hearts. As kids demonstrate play is not over there, but forever here and now."

-Vince Gowmon

 

"It's okay to be absurd, ridiculous and downright irrational at times, silliness is the sweet syrup that helps us swallow the bitter pills of life." - Richelle E. Goodrich
