MULTIUSE TRAIL RULES

1. Equestrian and bicycle use is authorized by a general permit and designation of specific bicycle access routes. All users must comply with these rules, the provisions of Chapter 11, Article XI of the Palm Beach County Code, and the rules posted at informational kiosks.
2. Equestrians and cyclists must stay on the designated multiuse trails. Lands adjacent to the trails are environmentally sensitive and can easily be damaged.
3. Do not tie or hitch horses or bicycles to trees or shrubs. If you wish to hike on the natural area, use horse hitches and bike racks at trailheads.
4. Do not allow horses to graze on or otherwise damage vegetation.
5. Ride at your own risk. Riding helmets are recommended. Helmets are mandatory for riders under the age of 16. See Florida Statutes, Section 773.06 (for equestrians) and Section 316.2065 (for cyclists).
6. Horses and bicycles must be under control at all times. No galloping, running, racing, or trick riding.
7. Cyclists must yield right of way to equestrians:
• Announce yourself as soon as you are within hearing distance.
• Ask the equestrian rider how to proceed without startling the horse.
• Keep talking- your voice will distinguish you from a predator.
8. Equestrians must walk their horses when approaching or passing others. If riding abreast, one rider must yield to the approaching or passing rider.
9. Horses known to kick must wear red ribbons in their tails.
10. Riders must carry proof of a negative Coggins test and present it upon request
