- Please stay on designated trails. Don’t go off trails. For your safety and to protect soil from erosion do not take shortcuts.
- Respect the sounds of nature. Avoid using loud voices and creating noise from mobile phones and music.
- Be predictable and travel consistently so other trail users know what to expect. Always look behind before changing positions on a trail.
- Don’t block trails. Please stay within your own half-width of a trail.
- Cyclists must yield to pedestrians. If a pathway is busy with pedestrians, consider walking instead of cycling. Dismount when meeting pedestrians on narrow bridges at Island Lake CA.
- Be cautious. All boardwalks are slippery when wet.
- Observe wildlife from a distance. Do not follow or approach wild animals.
- Never feed wildlife. Feeding animals in the wild damages their health and alters natural behaviours.
- We have garbage and recycling stations throughout each conservation area. Please use them and don’t litter.
