Minturn is a beautiful city and its location at the base of the foothills makes it a popular place for outdoor enthusiasts, both visitors and residents alike. Since the bike and pedestrian paths get a fair amount of use all year long, it is important for path and trail users to be knowledgeable about proper usage so that everyone who uses them can remain safe.
Ride – Skate – Walk
Who Yields the Trail?
Before passing another trail user, be courteous and make your approach known. A friendly greeting, “Hello, passing on your left,” or ringing a bell is considerate.
