When travelling along the roadway, cyclists must obey traffic laws and pedestrians are required to use the municipal sidewalk or travel on the shoulder of the road facing oncoming traffic. Under no circumstances should anyone traverse the Canadian National Railway mainline.
- Always pass on the left when possible
- Cyclists yield to rollerbladers and walkers
- Rollerbladers yield to walkers
- Cyclists and rollerbladers must pass other trail users with care and caution
- Do not litter and leave the trails cleaner than when you arrived
