A couple of things to note when in the forestry, most are obvious but they need spelling out so there is no grey area.
- No Fires - of any kind, don't even contemplate it. If you see a fire report it immediately.
- Give way to logging trucks - Yes, in this case, they do own the road. It is tricky enough maneuvering on a narrow gravel road without having to swerve suddenly for a bike. Be aware you may encounter a truck during the daytime.
- Forest Closure - if the fire risk gets too high the forest may be closed. An alternate route will be posted with instructions.
- Gates - as with farmland, leave them as you found them. If the gate is locked you may have to lift your bike over the barrier.
