Wildlife in the Park – Caution

Wildlife in the Park – Caution

Please use caution when encountering wildlife in our parks.

When visiting our park you expect to see great views. You probably even expect to meet other hikers or bikers. But you may not expect to meet a coyote, deer or snake. These kinds of wild animal encounters can range from awe-inspiring to scary, and knowing ahead of time what to do can take some of the fear out of seeing animals on the trail.

Don’t feed the animals. Any animals. It’s not great for them, and it can be potentially dangerous for you.

Don’t try to pet the animals. Avoid touching any wildlife you see. It’s not safe for you or them.

Don’t get too close. Most wild animals don’t love it when you invade their space.

Don’t provoke, sneak up on, or scare animals.
