Stay on the trail except where there are established trailside rest areas. Native trailside vegetation provides beauty and habitat. Damaging vegetation can cause erosion and allow weeds to spread. Shoreline areas and creekside are particularly sensitive.
Pack out your litter and dispose properly in waste bins.
Watch for wildlife on the trail. In the spring and fall particularly, snakes may seek warmth from the trail, and can be run over by cyclists.
Respect neighbours at trail parking areas by accessing the trail safely and quietly. Respect landowners and agricultural operations along the trail.
Share the trail with other trail users.
Here are some great reminders from Rails to Trails Conservancy:
