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: 

Guided Hike COVID-19 Guidelines (updated February 8, 2021)

Walking/Hiking Club Guidelines (updated March 12, 2021)

May 3, 2021 Update:

No formal events should be happening at this time (so that would include public hikes, walks or gatherings). You should only gather indoors or outdoors with your household bubble, which is the people you live with. Households of two or less people can socialize with one or two others but they must be the same people if it is a regular occurrence. Getting outside is encouraged, as long as the gathering limits are respected. Masks should be worn outside where physical distancing is difficult to maintain. Travel restrictions are now in place where people are not to travel outside of their home communities. Learn more here
