Awareness & alertness when visiting the Forest

The Mark Twain National Forest (Forest) is a place of beauty. When walking through the woods or riding a horse on a trail, the woodlands, glades, and other natural vistas can lull a visitor into a calm state of mind. 

Although finding calm is a great reason to visit the woods, ensuring that you stay alert and aware of potential hazards in nature and on the Forest is essential for having a safe visit.

Nature — plants, wildlife, and terrain — is uncontrollable, so be prepared for the unexpected when visiting the great outdoors.
