The Pathway System exists for the use of all Town residents. Observing the 3C’s-Common sense, Courtesy and Communication will make path usage pleasurable. Bicyclists should yield to horseback riders and pedestrians, pedestrians should yield to horseback riders. Drivers should always display extreme caution when passing bicyclists, equestrians and all pathway users. Not all paths and trails are designed for all uses. Bicyclists should stay on hard surface paths and roadways.
Maintenance of the Pathway System is a joint effort between Town residents and the Town’s maintenance crew. Residents have responsibilities to keep paths on their property clear of brush, debris, and overhanging tree branches. Residents are not permitted to block paths with mailboxes, plants, irrigation equipment or parked cars. It is important to be sure drainage is diverted away from paths to prevent erosion. Rototilling should be kept 5 feet away from paths. Where driveways cross a path, they must be roughened, and no sealers should be used. A slick driveway is especially dangerous for horses and their riders.
