As you all know,  many USA states have issued a stay at home order.  Theaters, restaurants,  shopping centers, playgrounds, schools have all been closing.  However, hiking trails are still open,  maintain social distancing,  stay home.  

Honestly,  I  don't think it's working.  I've been on way too many hikes around a nearby computer park,  none of them because I wanted to go, but because my parents wanted to go and made me go along with them. The parking lots were all full to the brim,  and the narrow trails were so crowded with pepole, it was difficult to matin a 6- foot distance throughout, even if you took the more isolated paths as most of them reconnect to the main path eventually.   Never mind the fact that as warmer weather comes round the corner,  the energy needed for the harder and more isolated paths could end up leading to heat exhaustion or worse, heatstroke. That would stress out the healthcare system. 

For everybody's own safety, narrow trails, narrow sidewalks and parking lots should really be closed. If pepole really want to enjoy the parks, they can drive through them just like the restaurants.
