VISITATION RULES AND TIPS
Park only in designated parking areas. Parking is limited, which protects nature and prevents overcrowding. If there is no room to park at the trailhead, please return to visit the preserve on another day.
Open hours: dawn to dusk unless noted otherwise.
Always stay on the trails and do not disturb plants, animals, minerals, or historic artifacts. Hunting is not allowed except for limited hunting at Columbia Mine Preserve with a permit.
Dogs are welcome but must be leashed at all times for the safety of wildlife, plants, your dog, and other people.
No camping, fires, off-road vehicles, bikes, or horses are allowed.
There are no restrooms, drinking fountains, or trash receptacles. Plan to take home any trash, including dog waste.
Be prepared for mosquitos as well as ticks, chiggers, and poison ivy, which can all be found along trails.
