Stay Off the Rocks and Roofs

Secure footing is key on any hike.

Respect trail markers by staying on the ground and off of roofs, and don't explore the rocks on the lakefill.

If you have access to a roof or somebody invites you to go out on a rooftop, please don’t. Even if you are not impaired, being on a roof is extremely dangerous. If a person is intoxicated, that risk is even greater. Falls from even short heights can result in serious injury including head/brain trauma, bone fractures, and death.

The rocks on the lakefill pose an added risk for injury beyond broken bones or head injuries from falls. Slipping and falling into the lake could result in additional injuries, hypothermia, or drowning. Obey all warning signs and security personnel and do not go onto the rocks during Dillo Day.
