Be aware of these kinds of surfaces. They can cause falls if you are not aware! Check out some examples below.



Streets and Sidewalks are not the only place in the High Country where you might experience conditions that could cause you to trip and fall. Keep in mind that hiking and other outdoor activities often contain trip hazards, especially if you are not paying attention.
