Columbus Recreation and Parks Trail Etiquette

All Users
All City of Columbus Codes are enforced.(
Motorized vehicles are not permitted. Be courteous and predictable to other trail users at all times. Keep right, always pass on the left, giving audible warning to pedestrians, skaters and other bicyclists. Maintain single file when others are within 100'. Pets are not permitted on greenway trails unless on a leash (maximum length of six feet) and under the direction of the pet owner; you must also clean up after your pet on all portions of the greenway trails. Dispose of litter in waste receptacles. Alcohol is prohibited on trails in park systems.


Bicyclists and Skaters
Yield to pedestrians. Give audible warning when passing pedestrians, skaters or bicyclists. Ride and skate at a safe speed. Slow down and form a single file in congested conditions, reduced visibility, and other hazardous conditions.


Please stay to the right side of the trail except when otherwise designated. Watch for other trail users. Be especially alert when running. Listen for audible signals and allow faster trail users (runners and bicyclists) to pass safely.
