Cattle & Sheep On The Trails

You may run into cattle or sheep on the trails. They are not aggressive, but they are large animals.
Safety Tips
  • Approach cattle and sheep slowly. Most will move away as people approach on foot or bicycle.
  • If possible, walk around groups of cattle, not through them.
  • Don't approach calves, even though they may seem cute. Their moms are usually watching and will not be happy.
  • Avoid getting between calves and their mothers.
  • If you see a sick cow or sheep, please report it to our staff at the Watershed Office,Interpretive Center, Marina or the entrance gates.
