Trail courtecy is everybody's responsibility; following a few unwritten rules can help make your hike and the hike for others more pleasant.
• Stay on the trail! Cutting corners on switchbacks and walking off the trail to get
around mud puddles is bad for trail sustainability.
• Keep PETS on a LEASH! Even friendly dogs can be disreptive to native animals
or other trail uses, some of whom may have alergies.
• Pack it in; Pack it out! Even biodegradable items are not good for animals.
• Move off the trail when you stop so others to pass by unobstructed
• Leave what you find; bring home only potographs and memories.
• Hike quietly. Speak in low voices and turn your cell phone down
• Hikers going downhill yield to those hiking uphill.
.• Don’t feed the wildlife.
PGFHP was the site of a serious biking accident this past spring. You can help keep our parks safe by staying on established trails and following common trail courtesy. Building rouge trails is not only dangerous, it destroys what we have worked so hard to establish and creates conflicts between the various user groups - hikers, cyclist, equestrian.

PGFHP Ride Park
The Port Gamble Ride Park, in partnership with the North Kitsap Trails Association and Evergreen Mountain Bike Alliance, would cover up to 200 acres adjacent to the recently acquired 534-acre Port Gamble Shoreline Heritage Park and be connected to the planned Sound-to-Olympics regional trail. The Park is intended to provide a variety of mountain bike activities including riding loops and skill obstacles for all ages and activity levels.
