Get to know the community, walk the trails, enjoy the outdoors, and
please keep your pets on leashes.
Ride Friendly – Bicyclists should give an audible warning before overtaking pedestrians. A simple statement such as “passing on your left (right)” will do. A bicycle bell is a traditional signal.
Ride Safely – The Texas Code of Laws says that anyone under the age of 18 MUST wear head protection while riding a bicycle; it’s a good idea for everyone.
Cell Phone Tips - If you need emergency assistance while on our trails keep in mind that 911 call takers cannot always locate your exact location from a cell phone. We and our sister trails have marked the block numbers of the streets by our trail entrances to help Emergency Services respond quickly. A trail fire can swiftly endanger homes, let the call taker know that a “trail fire is in progress” and give them the closest hundred block street number. Only HFD Booster trucks can extinguish fires in our wooded areas.
Be Thoughtful – Please take your trash home or place it in one of the trash receptacles located on the trails. A special thanks to all those conscientious walkers who carry plastic bags to pick up debris on the trail that has been carelessly discarded.
