Be Responsible in the Outdoors

Coloradans need to practice trail safety etiquette while recreating outdoors and to visit parks responsibly during the COVID-19 pandemic.

  • Stay at home if you are sick.

  • Recreate locally and avoid travel to mountain communities.

  • Spread out on trails and follow social distancing guidelines.

  • Participate in the Colorado Mask Project and wear a non-medical mask when you go outside to protect yourself and our community.

  • Avoid creating crowds around trailheads. Adjust your outdoor recreation plans and use COTREX to find another local trail option.

  • Avoid dangerous outdoor activities that can result in a hospital visit.

  • Pack out your trash.
