Covid-19 Continues to Redefine Our Outdoor Routine
March 27, 2020
We strongly recommend following all state and federal guidelines for preventing the spread of Covid-19 to our friends and neighbors. While hiking and other outdoor activities are a good way to combat the monotony of quarantine, full trail heads and carpooling when not necessary work against the community efforts to slow the spread of the virus. When choosing a trail to hike avoid parking lots that are filling up, ride to the trail separate from friends and allow a minimum of 6' between yourself and all other hikers and bikers. Simply being outside does not relieve us from our responsibility to each other, and the virus is still able to move from person to person on trails.
