To ensure safety for yourself, other trail users, and mule riders, when encountering mules on the trails step off the trail on the uphill side away from the edge. Follow the directton of the wwangler. Remain completely quiet and stand perfectly still. Do not return to the trail until the last mule is 50 feet past your position.
