Covid-19 Best Practices

Together we can all do our part to have fun and stay safe!

Please walk the lighthouse loop counter-clockwise. Encouraging one way trail use will decrease cross traffic. Please PASS by stepping into VIEWPOINTS, do not block traffic flow. Alert users with kindness from a distance to agree where passing is safe (2 metres apart). Also avoid stepping on sensitive plants, find a gravel pullout. Keep dogs close to you on their leash. Joggers please jog in place until it is safe to pass. If the parking lot is full, come back later. Please keep 2 metres apart (the wing span of a bald eagle). If someone else is invading this space turn you back.

Please also avoid touching signs, wash hands after your walk.

As restrictions to travel inside BC begin to ease, we must work together to balance community safety with welcoming visitors. We want the summer to be enjoyable for everyone, respecting the health guidelines by the province as well as physical distancing while enjoying our trails and facilities.

Nature is an incredible healer, so for our mental and physical health please respect our guidelines. If we can not keep this distance, the trail will face closure. Enjoy a virtual visit with our video series, our most recent episode is below.
