    1. Technical Trail Features (TTFs):Technical trail features, also known as freeride features, are constructed, OPTIONAL trail facilities (such as ladder bridges, teeter totters, wall rides, etc.) that offer mountain bikers a chance to test their riding skills. The Towns Fre-eride Park, located adjacent to the Four Oclock Trail and Grandview Drive, contains multiple TTFs and dirt jumps. You may also encounter marked TTFs in other loca-tions, such as the B-Line Trail. All features are designed for mountain bike use only and are strictly optional. Difficulty ratings and signage will help direct users to the features that match their skill level.

    REMEMBER: RIDING TECHNICAL TRAIL FEATURES IS A HIGH RISK, HAZARDOUS ACTIVITY. USE OF THESE FEA-TURES IS DONE SO AT YOUR OWN RISK.

    2. Stay on the trails at all times:Going off-trail even a little bit can damage or destroy sensitive areas. Dont pick flowers or disturb wildlife.

    3. Be Courteous: Bikers must yield to pedestrians and equestrians. An uphill rider has the right of way. Announce yourself when approaching. Saying hello, please, and thank you go a long way!

    4. Pick up after your dog: Its the law in Summit County, and the right thing to do.

    5. leave no trace:If its muddy or closed, dont use it. Never create detours around mud. Dont litter.

    6. No dogs allowed in Cucumber Gulch: This preserve is a protected wetland area with critical habitat, so no pets are allowed. Violators will be ticketed.
