    Notes:

    • Be aware of avalanche conditions. Current conditions can be found at Avalanche Canada.
    • Wildlife in the region is active. Practice wildlife safety. Make sure you're making noise on the trail, paying close attention to your surroundings, and carry bear spray and know how to use it.
    • Caution is advised for natural hazards such as downed trees, washouts and missing bridges. Route-finding may be necessary.
    • It’s tick season! Ticks live on our trails and are prominent in the spring. Protect yourself from tick bites by covering your skin with light coloured clothing, using bug spray containing DEET, and checking yourself and your pets after you have been outside.
