Hiking & COVID-19
In this uncertain time as society deals with the COVID-19 virus pandemic, we encourage people to still get outdoors (where possible, safe and appropriate). Hiking and walking outside is an excellent way to de-stress and to stay healthy! We urge you to hike while respecting gathering limits
, practice social distancing
and follow the advice of public health officia
ls. Parks, trails and beaches are now open but there are restrictions to their use
. If you have questions about trail use, please ask government directly
. Note that the new gathering limits coming into effect on October 1 do not
apply to hiking groups or guided hikes, unfortunately.
