A message about Trail and Greenbelt use in the time of Social Distancing

BIKE PARK AND GREENBELT USERS, I AM SO PROUD OF YOU.  I’ve been out there with you a bunch in the last few weeks, and what I see is very encouraging. While you undergo trail-therapy, you’re staying clear of others but with a smile on your face. You’re giving right of way and you’re patient when waiting to pass slowpokes like me. You’re hauling out your dog’s doggy bags so others (like our staff) won’t have to touch something that’s more dangerous and unpleasant now than it ever was. We appreciate all this.

This whole six-feet-apart thing is critical if area trails systems are to stay open. We must see that you’re keeping your distance while going the distance.

The City of Eagle is constantly reviewing the availability of our open spaces and how increased use might add to the problem. The last time Eagle closed the trails system was during and after the Greenbelt flooding of 2017. We did so because we felt that the damaged trails might be hazardous to users. No one wants to go there again. That time it was the riverbanks we couldn’t trust. But this time we have our trust in you.
