Default Trail Etiquette ??

Has anyone got a good list of trail etiquette that I might post at our trailhead?

While I realize that our trail is for the enjoyment of all users... I feel some folks either don't understand the problems they cause or they just don't care that they are being pains in the kiester and sometimes downright dangerous.

Tonight I almost bashed into a foursome of runners who apparently didn't feel like allowing me to have 1/2 of the trail. They came at me 4 abreast across the whole trail, which is all the trail can accomodate. As I approached them at about 16 mph they kind of skootched over just a bit which would have given me about 1/3 of my half and would mean I would have to stop pushing completely and become as small as possible in order to stay on the paved trail surface. So I held to the center of my lane, reduced the size of my push and went right at the guy in front of me. He yelped a bit as he dodged out of my way, but that was all I heard from them.

I know that I was confrontational in what I did and that in general this isn't good public relations for our sport. However, I feel that there are times under certain conditions when folks DO need to be confronted.

SO... any good lists of Do's and Don'ts?
