The St. Lawrence County multi-use trails will open this weekend, May 18, and close on Sept. 16.

“Our volunteer trail crews have reviewed trails, cleared blown down trees, graded and trail hardened where needed,” said trail coordinator Deb Christy. “Please as always respect the landowners and stay on the trail.”

St. Lawrence County Legislator Tony Arquiett, D-Helena, "strongly encourages" all users of the multi-use trail system to follow all rules and regulations to "insure that we all can enjoy our outdoor activities for many, many years to come," county officials said.

St. Lawrence County Trail Committee officials in a news release said they would like to remind all trail users of the following rules when the trail is officially opened:

• Stay on marked trail. Enter and exit the trail system only at trailheads or town connectors.

• Trail is open 6 a.m. until midnight unless special permission is granted.

• Obey all signs, gates and barriers.

• Always stop when signaled by a law enforcement or safety patrol officer.

• No camping or campfires are permitted.

• Respect the environment. Travel with minimum impact. Do not litter. Carry out what you carry in and leave nothing behind.

• Always carry personal identification.

• Watch the weather and dress appropriately.

• Adult supervision is required for those under 18.

• No alcohol may be consumed on the trail.

• Be prepared – carry a first aid kit, tools, spare equipment and a cell phone or two way radio.
