The Gallatin Valley Land Trust, Run dog Run and the Bridger Ski Foundation teamed up to remind people to share the trails.

With the recent heavy snowfall, multi-use trails should see lots of traffic in the next few days.

Proper etiquette means classic skiers, skate skiers, snowshoeing enthusiasts and hikers should all stay in their lanes.

Trailheads like Sourdough Trail in Bozeman have posted signs to remind people how to properly enjoy the carefully groomed trails.

“As the area even gets more and more crowded, people are always coming out to the trails. And there is a limited supply of trails,” Matt Marcinek, community trails program manager with the Gallatin Valley Land Trust.

“We do this to try to remind people how important it is. And if they have some questions if they’re unclear then maybe we can help them out on that.”

Run-Dog-Run would also like to remind people the importance of picking dog waste on the trails.

Many trailheads in the area have waste bags in case you forgot yours at home.
