Make noise to warn wildlife of your presence and avoid surprising them at close range which may provoke defensive behaviour. All our trails are multi use and are becoming noticeably busier with hikers, bikers,dogs and wildlife. Making noise, especially when approaching blind corners and areas where the line of sight is poor will result in a reduction in human/wildlife and trail user conflict. Remember, wildlife and uphill traffic have the right of way.
