The Happy Trails Pledge

Say Hello
I pledge to be mindful of my actions, friendly and expect to see other folks around every corner. Each user on the trail is a fellow outdoor enthusiast. I pledge to be kind when I choose to interact with others. People come out to the trails for different reasons. I want to make sure there is room for everyone.

Show Respect
I pledge to offer respect to my fellow trail users. All user groups have rights and responsibilities to Boise’s trails and to each other. Whether you hit the trails for recreation, fellowship or a mental refresh, you are welcome here.
