Hikers: Please Leash Your Dogs!

SVT is pleased that more and more people are discovering and using our trails during the COVID-19 crisis. Exploring nature is a great way to relax during these tense times.

In response to this heavy trail use, however, we have changed our policies regarding dogs on our trails.

For the foreseeable future, we are requiring that dogs on our trails be leashed. Please also keep your dog close by your side.

Unleashed dogs or those on a long leash can approach other hikers or other dogs and create close interactions that do not comply with proper social distancing. 

Thank you for your cooperation. Please see additional Special Trail Policies.
