Please cross roads, streets, and highways safely

Newton Trails has received reports of trail users ignoring stop signs where our trails intersect roads, streets, and even highways. Please, for your own safety and for the safety of others, stop, look both ways, and proceed with caution. You can never assume car or truck drivers will see you or stop.


Crosswalks have, or soon will be, painted on every road that our trails intersect. Cars and trucks must, by state law, stop to allow pedestrians who have entered the crosswalk to cross the road. However, cars and trucks are not required to stop for cyclists, skaters, or anyone other than pedestrians. Please use all trails safely
