Beware of horses at all times. Don’t make sudden movements.  Hikers yield to horses.

Manure Handling

Horse manure is relatively "dry" and "hot" due to unique digestive enzymes and flora. Once deposited, it can achieve total mineralization in as short a time as 21 days (Ajwa, et al 1994).

Mother Nature has a marvelous buffering capacity when even as little as 10 feet of vegetation is available at the side of a trail. www.ca.nrcs.usda.gov/rts/sec4.htm

It is inconceivable that trail horses would negatively impact the trails.

Trail Head = pack it out (standard trail practice)
