Trail Type Code Explanation

Trail Type Codes Descriptions of trail types
Trail Network Overview
New Trail descriptions are subjective and can change due to construction etc.
Some trails are conditional road bike using some detours.
Notes Some trails may be a mixture of surfaces from start to end.
I will try to separate codes in those cases.  Sometimes street alternatives exist.

s Single Track Single Track - trail may get very narrow!
Hikers and horses may share these trails with you.
Please be courteous and friendly.
Horses can be nervous around bicycles, dismount if possible.
Regional trails often have posted speed limits that must be observed.
Riders going uphill have right of way - keep speed under control especially on corners.
Trails may also have gates that need to be closed behind you to keep livestock from straying.
You can be ticketed/fined for not observing trail regulations.
