No one wants to hear about rules when they're planning an adventure but as a biological preserve we ask that you please:

  • Keep pets leashed at ALL times
  • Stay on trails
  • Take nothing that you didn't bring with you and leave nothing behind that you did

Not so bad, right? Full BFEC rules and regulations can be found at the Resource Center or at any trail-head.
