Trail Etiquette

The City of Waterloo encourages you to follow some basic tips when using our trails.

  • Share the trail
  • Always announce your intent to pass and allow others to pass safely
  • Use only marked trails and follow the signs
  • Do not trespass on private land
  • Stop for vehicular traffic where trails cross streets
  • Stay on the trails to avoid damaging nearby vegetation or creek banks
  • Leave plants and small creatures in their natural habitats
  • Use waste receptacles or carry your litter home
  • Respect the privacy of people living adjacent to trails
  • Keep your pet on a leash
  • Pick up after your dog - we have a by-law that requires pet owners to clean up after dogs within city limits

Your co-operation will help protect our trails and improve everyone's experiences there.
