Bikes, dogs and horses on walkways
You may not take bikes, dogs or horses on a walkway unless there has been a special agreement with the landowner or public land administrator. This will be indicated on the signs.
Unless signposted to the contrary, it should be assumed that bikes, dogs, horses, and motor vehicles are prohibited.
There is an exception for mobility vehicles and disability assist dogs, including Seeing Eye Dogs.
The controlling authorities’ websites will provide track and usage information.
