    When visiting the Forest at this time we ask that you please do your part and follow these health and safety guidelines to help prevent the spread of COVID-19

    • Do not visit recreation areas if you are sick
    • Look for alternative sites if an area or trail is crowded. Limit your group size
    • Maintain social distancing of 6 feet from other people
    • While on trails alert others of your presence. Step aside to let others pass at a safe distance.
    • Park in designated areas
    • Wear a mask
    • Bring enough water and supplies to sustain your visit

    Manage your trash responsibly: carry it in your backpack until you find a trash can or recycling container outside of the forest.

    Admire, touch, and enjoy its fragrance, if possible, leaving everything you find along the way in its place.

    Walk and/or camp only in designated areas.

    Protect wildlife by keeping your distance.
