During this difficult time for our region and globe as we are affected by COVID-19, the OZ Trails system can be a great source of healing. In order to keep this resource available, we must use it safely during this time.
We ask that you observe the following guidelines if you choose to use the trails.
- The CDC recommends wearing cloth face coverings in public settings where other social distancing measures are difficult to maintain (e.g., grocery stores and pharmacies), especially in areas of significant community-based transmission. Many of our towns in Northwest Arkansas have set a mask mandate including Bentonville, Rogers, and Fayetteville. Please check city websites for updates in each community you visit.
- Give at least 2 bike lengths between you and other trail users. Slow down and communicate with other trail users from a distance to determine when and how to pass one another.
- Do not congregate in groups on the trails or at trailheads.
- Please refer to the CDC as well as our state and local governments for guidance.
