General Guidelines and Tips:
►Dogs are required to be on a leash at all times.
►Yield the right of way when hiking with your dogs - not all hikers are comfortable around dogs.
►In Winter dogs and walkers may use the ungroomed trails only. Dogs must be kept on a leash for the safety of wildlife and enjoyment of trails by all. (See: Winter Sports for more information.)
►In all seasons, please clean up after your pets (pet excrement in the garden and lawn must be collected by pet owners and removed from the park.)
►Hiking is hard work for a dog. Watch your dog for signs of stress and fatigue, and give it plenty of water and rest.
►Never leave pets unattended inside vehicles, especially during summer.
