Trail etiquette campaign launched

Take Care Tahoe

Trail users on the multi-use Legacy Trail in Truckee will find messages stenciled in chalk along the path. From educational “Share the path” and “Keep right” reminders, to more tongue-in-cheek messages such as “Friends don’t let friends block trails” and “It’s okay to be shy, but if you’re about to pass, say hi,” according to a press release.

The goal of the Take Care Tahoe campaign is to reduce trail-user conflicts and collisions on paved paths. The two biggest issues are large groups blocking the entire trail by walking side-by-side and bikes going too fast around pedestrians.

The public is encouraged to share feedback and new message ideas on Take Care Tahoe’s website and social media channels. Any new message ideas that are submitted have the potential to become new stencils.

In addition to the Legacy Trail, the campaign will be introduced on the Trout Creek Trail in Truckee once construction is completed. In the future, it may also be expanded to other regional multi-use paved trails. | takecaretahoe.org
