Rules of the Trail

Woodbury residents and visitors are encouraged to take advantage of our robust trail system. When enjoying our trails, please keep the following rules in mind:

  • Give pedestrians the right-of-way. City ordinance grants pedestrians the right-of-way on city trails. Those operating bicycles, skateboards, scooters or rollerblades should take caution and alert walkers or joggers as they approach. Faster trail users should pass on the left side. 
  • Manage your speed. Trail users (bikes, roller blades, push scooters) must travel at a safe speed based on the trail environment and presence of other users on the trail while under complete control with the ability to safely stop or slow down when needed.  
  • Do not use motorized vehicles. Motorized vehicles—including golf carts, segways and motorized scooters—are not allowed on city trails. Exceptions are motorized wheelchairs and electric-assist or pedal-assist bicycles (per Minnesota State Statute). 
  • Keep pets on a leash. Woodbury city ordinance requires all pets to be leashed whenever off the private property of their owner. In addition, owners are responsible for cleaning up after their pet. Learn more on the Animal Control page.      

 In addition, please consider these trail etiquette guidelines: 

  • In general, keep to the right of the trail and be prepared to yield to other trail users.
  • If you are wearing headphones, keep the volume low enough that you can hear your surroundings and other trail users announcing they are passing.
  • Walkers and joggers should stay to the right on the trail and limit space taken up by larger groups to allow others to pass.

If you come across any maintenance issues on our trails, please let us know by calling 651-714-3720 or send an email. Be sure to include a description of where the issue is located.
