Trail Users’ Code

Trail Users’ Code

All MMLT properties are privately owned, preserved for the protection and enjoyment of nature.  You are welcome to use trails on those MMLT properties which are open to the public at your own risk.

Please abide by the following trail rules

  • Stay on marked trails.
  • Pack it in, pack it out. The trails are maintained entirely by volunteers so please leave the trail cleaner than you found it.
  • Any activity that causes disturbance or harm to the area and its inhabitants is not permitted.
  • Leave flowers, plants, trees, rocks and wildlife undisturbed for others to enjoy. Take only photographs, memories and gratitude.
  • Where dogs are permitted, keep dogs on a leash and under control at all times. Remove pet waste.
  • Bicycles, motorized vehicles and horses are not permitted.
  • Camping, hunting and fires are not permitted.
  • MMLT does not actively maintain canoe or kayak access on water bodies on its reserves.


Public Access:

To optimize protection of the ecological health of sensitive habitats while fostering connections between people and the natural world, the reserves are classified into three categories:

OPEN:  open to the public with a designated, maintained trail system;

CLOSED: site is temporarily closed to facilitate management and ensure public safety, or due to factors beyond the control of MMLT.

RESTRICTED:  these properties are ecologically sensitive, therefore access is by permission or guided tour only.
