Trail Etiquette

The GreenBelt is a multi-use trail optimized for pedestrian and bicycle use. Trail etiquette helps identify the best practices that help everyone enjoy their time on the trail.

General rules

Users must stay on the trail. No trespassing on private property.

Stay in the right lane – let oncoming and faster travellers to pass you.

Do not disturb nature – do not pick flowers or touch wild animals

Do not litter. Do not overfil trash cans or contaminate recycling bins with non-recyclable items.


Pets should be kept on a short leash at all times.

Walk pets on the right shoulder and do not let them cross to the left lane of the trail.

For your and your pet’s safety – do not use retractable leash.

Clean after your pet! Doggy stations are available in several locations.

Bike Use

Yield to pedestrians – pedestrians always have the right-of-way.

Keep right and pass on the left – the trail is like a roadway.

Announce yourself; for example, “On your left!” Warn trail users as you approach from behind.

Stop at intersections and travel at safe speeds.

…and enjoy the Trail!
