Trail etiquette

All multi-use pathway users have a responsibility to be considerate and respectful of all park/trail users. The following tips are provided to help ensure that all pathway users have an enjoyable and safe experience:

  • Cyclists rollerbladers, and similar faster-moving persons must yield to pedestrians.
  • Faster trail users should pass on the left and keep to the right when on the trail.
  • Only pass when it is safe to do so and the trail is wide enough.
  • When riding a bike, let people know you are approaching by ringing your bell or giving a friendly greeting.
  • Dogs should be kept on a leash in parks, except in designated off-leash areas.
  • To protect the pathways and parks, stay on the trail and don't litter.
  • According to the Parks By-law, trail users including cyclists and rollerbladers and sateboarders should not exceed the speed of 20km/h when traveling in a park.
  • If the pathway is busy with pedestrians, consider walking instead of cycling, rollerblading or skateboarding. The trail will be signed to notify trail users that they must yield to pedestrians.
