Guidelines For Using Local Hiking Trails

Guidelines for using Local Hiking trails

  • Be prepared. Expect unexpected weather and wildlife.
  • Use caution and always tell others where you’re headed before you go out hiking and what time you’ll return.
  • Know your limits. Choose a trail that matched your hiking ability or the ability of the weakest member of your group.
  • Some trails are multi-use meaning they’re open to horses, cyclists, hikers and trail runners.
  • Always stay on the trails. Don’t cut switchbacks as this destroys trailside vegetation and damages trails.
  • Creating new trails in Chilliwack’s forests, without permission, is not allowed.
  • Pack out all of your garbage.
  • Keep dogs on leash at all times unless signs say otherwise.
  • Be courteous and respectful of other trail users.
