Trail Rules & Etiquette

Using the Pathways

To ensure everyone can enjoy the Paola Pathways trail system, please follow our guidelines:

Conscientious dog owner prepares for a walk
  • The trails are designed for walkers, runners, and bicyclists. Horses and motorized vehicles are not allowed. Violators are subject to fines.

  • Share the trail with fellow community members.

  • Keep to the right; say “on your left” before passing.

  • Cyclists should yield to runners and walkers.

  • Keep your trails clean. There are garbage and recycling bins at trailheads to ensure you leave no trace.

  • Thank you for not smoking or vaping.

  • Pets must be on a leash and under control at all times. [City Ord. No. 3080 §1, 1-27-2015]

  • Remember to pick up your pet’s waste, both on and off the trail.
