Below are some common questions that people have about our multi-use trails.

Who can use multi-use trails?

The trails are for all people-powered transportation. This means people walking, jogging, cycling, and who use mobility assistive devices.

What are the basic rules of using trails?

  • Don't litter!
  • Be aware of other trail users and respect their right to use the trails
  • Obey all traffic laws, posted signs, and signals
  • Walk, run, ride, or roll in a safe, consistent, and predictable manner
  • Don't block the trail
  • Cyclists and in-line skaters must yield to pedestrians
  • Keep on the right-hand side of the trail except when passing
  • Please keep pets on a leash and remember to clean up after them

Can I drive my car on a trail?

No motorized vehicles, except wheelchairs, and maintenance or emergency vehicles, are allowed on multi-use trails

Are e-bikes allowed on trails?

Yes, they are. E-bikes are regulated by the provincial government and the province has given e-bikes the same rights and responsibilities as regular bikes.

How fast can I travel on the trails?

For the safety and comfort of other trail users, the City recommends a maximum speed of 25km/h. Fast bike and e-bikes can go a lot faster than this, so please be mindful of your speed.
