Your safety when visiting

Anyone exploring Kejimkujik is reminded that they are responsible for their own safety and should be sure to properly prepare and plan for their trip, taking the necessary precautions to protect themselves from inclement weather and potential natural hazards.

Trip planning

  • Follow public health authorities’ guidance for your area, including travel advisories.
  • Masks are mandatory in indoor public spaces.
  • Plan ahead, prepare, and adjust your plans.
  • Respect closures and restrictions.

  • Carry disinfectant, wipes, and toilet paper.
  • Cover picnic tables.
  • Avoid touching hard surfaces.

Hiking and biking etiquette

  • Respect closures and restrictions.
  • Pack in and pack out. Keep our places clean, pick up your litter and dispose of it by using appropriate garbage containers or take your waste home.

  • Let others move out of bridges, platforms, and other narrow spaces before entering.
  • Step off trails to let others pass where possible. But please try to avoid stepping on vegetation and stay on trails unless letting others pass.
