Never start a fire or unauthorized barbecue!
You can pick flowers, but in moderation…

Hiking safely

To make the most of your nature outings:
– Keep an eye on the weather
– Respect your own pace and that of the other walkers in the group
– Always carry a bottle of water and don’t wait until you’re thirsty to drink
– Take a small snack with you
– Protect yourself from the sun: sunscreen and a hat
– Wear suitable shoes (sneakers are sufficient for our short hikes)
– In the middle of summer, avoid starting down the trail in the early afternoon; it’s best to go in the morning
