BOUNTIFUL - City leaders have approved a measure to apply some rules of behavior on city trailheads in an effort to curb what they describe as "undesirable activities."
Members of the city council recently voted to apply city park ordinances to city trailheads. The rules will give law enforcement a tool to enforce reasonable behavior in trailhead locations, according to Russell Mahan, city attorney.
Those rules prohibit sleeping, camping or erecting any tent or shelter on the premises, building or igniting a fire except in a fireplace or designated place, leaving refuge, cutting or damaging any tree, flower, vine or shrub and having any alcoholic beverage on the premises.
The newly approved rules also make it unlawful to indulge in any boisterous or offensive conduct or use any vulgar or profane language on a trailhead or public property.
