RTA response to COVID-19 (updated 21 April)

15 Mar 2020

Updated April 21, 2020:

  • events cancelled until further notice,
  • hikers are referred to government authorities regarding access to provincial parks, conservation areas, etc.

All RTA-organized events with personal contact (including hikes) are cancelled until further notice. An update will be provided when health authorities, and municipal and provincial governments provide new information.

During the COVID-19 pandemic use of hiking trails should be guided by directions from public health authorities and from municipal and provincial governments.  The guidance from these authorities will change over time and can be specific to your region.  It is important that you follow government guidelines.

You are responsible for your own safety when using the trails and you should consider the impact on first responders who might be called upon in the event you have an emergency.

When conditions change, and it is safe to do so, we look forward to seeing everyone out on the trail enjoying the unique experiences provided while hiking between Kingston and Ottawa.
