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 officials. 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 gathering limits have changed frequently, so please refer to the most up-to-date information on gathering limits before applying what we recommend in the documents below:

Getting outside is encouraged, as long as the gathering limits are respected. Masks should be worn outside where physical distancing is difficult to maintain. Learn more here
