Safety Tips:
1.  Be aware.  Choose not to be a target.
2.  Take a friend with you.  It's more fun & safe.
3.  Stay on designated trails.
4.  Watch for natural dangers (exposed tree roots, rocks, fallen trees, poison ivy, snakes, steep hills, cliffs, tornadoes, sun spots and other cosmic disturbances).
5.  If you find yourself in an emergency and need to call 911 you will need to know the exact address of the park.  It is posted on the information kiosk near the parking lot. 
6.  The only real dangers for the vast majority of people are getting lost or locking your keys in your car.  Tie a spare key onto your shoe lace.  To keep from getting lost, just stick to a simple "out-and-back" run.  When you are more comfortable with the trail, then explore some.
