A MESSAGE FROM OUR BOARD REGARDING COVID-19
When enjoying White Memorial, please be respectful and courteous to others, and follow the social distance etiquette:
– If you arrive at trail and crowds are forming, choose another trail.
– Observe the CDC’s minimum recommended social distancing of six feet from other people, whether you’re walking, biking, or hiking. Practice it and know what it looks like.
– Warn other trail users of your presence and as you pass to allow proper distance and step off trails to allow others to pass, keeping minimum recommended distances at all times.
– PLEASE KEEP ALL DOGS ON LEADS.
Our number one priority will always be the health and safety of our visitors and staff. Thus, we are instituting the following protocols:
