The following items have been recommended for all BlueRibbon affiliations for adoption. This list is a working document and subject to revision. If you have any suggestions please submit them to the Blueribbon Coalition Office.

  1. I will respect the rights of all recreationists to enjoy the beauty of the outdoors. I will respect public and private property.
  2. I will park considerately, taking no more space than needed, without blocking other vehicles and without impeding access to trails.
  3. I will keep to the right when meeting another recreationist. I will yield the right-of-way to traffic moving uphill.
  4. I will slow down and use caution when approaching or overtaking another.
  5. I will respect designated areas, trail-use signs and established trails.
  6. When stopping I will not block the trail.
  7. I will not disturb wildlife. I will avoid areas posted for the protection of feeding wildlife.
  8. I will pack out everything I packed in and will not litter.
  9. I realize that my destination objective and travel speed should be determined by my equipment, ability, the terrain, weather, and the traffic on the trail. In case of an emergency, I will volunteer assistance.
  10. I will not interfere with or harass others. I recognize that people judge all trail users by my action.
  11. Motorized trail users should pull off the trail and stop their engines when encountering horseback riders. It is also a good idea to take off your helmet and greet the riders.
