Check in at the kiosk.
This allows park staff to know who is in the park and is intended for your safety.

Be prepared. There may be some steep terrain. Recommended items to bring include water and a cell phone (or whistle).

Be alert. Wildlife is just that . . . WILD. Observe plants and animals from a safe distance. Do not harm or remove plants and animals. Watch for changing weather conditions and allow time to get back to your car before weather becomes severe.

Be wise. Know your physical limitations. If possible, take a partner. If you become lost, call (828) 441-7277.

Know the trail conditions. Wet trails can cause possible falls because the terrain is steep.

Use common sense. Most of all have fun and enjoy the natural beauty of St Stephens Park.
